Hello    My Friends
 
 
The 4 tribes in Kansas recently joined the NCAI and the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma in passing a resolution that urges congress to pass a law that would force states to repay illegally taxed military wages to all Native Americans who served in the armed forces and who were wrongfully taxed.
 
No one seems to know about it.  Not the Native voter,not the Native running for office and not even the Veterans who were illegally taxed.
 
The United States congress is aware of the wrongful taxation and stopped the illegal activity in 2001 but failed to pass legislation to repay these veterans.
A bill was even introduced into congress in 2004, the Native American Veteran Pay restoration Act, but it had no support and was quietly and quickly forgotten.
 
Each of you and all of us have veterans in our families. This Native Vote website must take this information and make a video ,start a blog discuss the issue and ensure the Native Voters and those running for office with Native populations are aware of this injustice.
Ask why congress admits taking millions but refuses to give it back. This illegal taxation happened to every Native Veteran whos state deducted state income taxes from all wages.
 
Have you ever owed taxes?  Were you late paying your taxes?   Did the Government or state let you off with a warning?  Or did they add a penalty? accrued interest? Late fee? All the above?
 
They should have the same rules apply to their tardiness in repaying these veterans!  Ahau  Migwech

Hi Talia, Rock the Native Vote (Rock the Vote and Native Vote) are always looking for volunteers to host a voter registration drive, teach a democracy class (high school), or help promote voting online via email, blogs, facebook, other social media. Have there been any events hosted in Gila River yet? If not maybe we can get something together before Oct. 8th.  by the way, I'm Jaynie, field organizer for rock the vote, we are partnering with Native Vote.

Hello everyone, I just signed up today so I'm not sure how I can help. I'm from Gila River and work in the community. I am interested in helping out.

It would be great if the Intertribal Council of Arizona informed the tribes to have their Human Resource departments support tribal members to vote.  Tribal members are not sure of who to vote for, so education is key.

Are there organized drives in Tucson? How can I get on board?
