"So the Native American Indians [SIC] were upset over the treaty being broken, and have taken their complaints to the federal government. It remains a controversy to this day.

We've tried to respect the Native American Indians and their land here by keeping the building to a minimum.And that's when the cynic in me said, "Wait... was all that explanation of screwing over the Native American Indians just a roundabout way to say 'don't be a litterbug'?"
