Comments: The 8/25/06 casino comments underscoress the difficulty of having genizaro indians recognized by the state and federal government. Under BIA law it takes millions of dollars to research and document tribal legitimacy. Oftentimes in the past BIA recognized tribes have exerted their political clout opposing potential casino competition.

Comments: the casino theory and the idea that "todo los hispanos somos poquito genizaro is ridiculous." Who would be so ignorant as to write such a comment?

Comments: To the person who sent in the November 13comment: Everybody is entitled to their opinions. But if you are going to ridicule or question a person's IQ, you ought to at least expound on your conclusions and have the courage to include your name...

Comments: It will never happen, never. I know several folks working for the Department of Interior on Indian recognition by the United States Government. You have to have multiple documents to prove which tribe you belong to.... And the tribe has to be recognized. Some are not because they cannot prove it. So it will not happen, do not even waste your time on it.
