Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re joined by Naomi Schaefer Riley, resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and author of “The New Trail of Tears: How Washington Is Destroying American Indians,” to discuss what’s really happening on Native American reservations. Many of us have heard of the disproportionate rates of violence and crime on reservations, but there’s little information on why this is happening. One of the biggest problems isn’t lack of funds, as many on the Left would have you believe – it’s mismanagement of funds. We talk about how the cycle of throwing money at the problem never fixes it and discuss the horror of the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, which prioritizes keeping Native American children on reservations over putting them in safe homes. We also discuss poor education rates on reservations and look intro why Native Americans don’t seem to have the same protections from crime and violence that the rest of the country does, even though they are U.S. citizens just like anyone else. Then, we ask what we can do to help.
