Supreme Court Rules Eastern Oklahoma Land Is An Indian Reservation
The justices ruled 5-4, declaring that Congress never diminished or disestablished
the land as a reservation.
By Brooklyn Wayland and Nina Golgowski
In a stunning blow to Oklahoma’s state government, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled
Thursday that much of eastern Oklahoma is located on an Indian reservation.
In a 5-4 ruling, the justices declared that Congress never diminished or
disestablished the land as a reservation. Major crimes committed by a tribal
member on their own reservation, in effect, must be prosecuted by the federal
government in accordance with the Major Crimes Act. This could open the door to
numerous appeals by people prosecuted by the state of Oklahoma who should
have been under tribal jurisdiction.
The opinion was also an acknowledgment by the nation’s highest court that the
U.S. government has, time and time again, broken promises to Indian tribes. The
Supreme Court’s opinion means that at least for the matter of this land, the
government must keep its commitment. .... This is a strike at the idea of White America ...
millions of workers who were furloughed in March and April have now gone back to work.
But two out of three jobs cut during the pandemic have not returned. And week
after week, millions of new people apply for unemployment. -- What to do?

A small town in Washington state has been printing its own wooden currency to
help residents and businesses navigate the economic pressures of the coronavirus
pandemic. Tenino, a town of fewer than 2,000 people about 60 miles southwest of Seattle,
began printing wooden $25 banknotes on an old printing press for the first time
since 1931 – the wake of the Great Depression.
In an effort to help residents and local merchants alike get through the economic
fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, the small town has issued wooden currency
for residents to spend at local businesses, decades after it created a similar
program during the Great Depression.
The town council in April approved a measure to issue up to $10,000 in available
funds, according to the outlet, and received an extra $6,000 in donations toward
the wooden bills.
Residents who have documented loss of income due to the pandemic are eligible
for up to $300 a month in the wooden currency, the outlet reported.
Nearly all businesses in the town are accepting the local bills, from the gas station
to grocery store, although it cannot be used to buy alcohol, tobacco or marijuana,
the Associated Press reported.
