Anti-Redskins Indian leader not a legitimate member of his tribe
Daily Caller ^ | October 14, 2013 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 10/15/2013 1:00:40 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

The American Indian leader spearheading the campaign to change the name of the Washington Redskins is not a legitimate member of the tribe he leads, according to a New York State Assemblywoman, but rather an Obama crony who is raking in casino money and paying back only small stipends to his tribe members.

Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter, who is also the CEO of Oneida Nation Enterprises, is not recognized in his position by the Grand Council of Chiefs governing the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy. Halbritter is not a legitimate member of the Oneida tribe, Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney told The Daily Caller.

“He is not even technically an Oneida. There is not a drop of Oneida in him,” Tenney said.

...SNIP...

“He has no ancestry in the Six Nations but he has a lot of powerful friends in D.C.,” Tenney said.

Halbritter attended a January 27, 2012 fundraiser with President Obama in Washington, D.C. with 70 Indian leaders. The $15,000 to $35,800 fundraiser raised up to $2.5 million for Obama’s re-election campaign.

....SNIP....

I wasn’t aware of a legal entity of any of the Six Nations in the United States. The Six Nations backed the British during the American Revolution, so the King gave them a reservation in Ontario after the war.

Ward Churchill, Elizabeth Warren, and now this guy. There’s almost enough fake Indians to make up a new tribe.

That’s one my favorite Sopranos episode of all time. Furio didn’t like Columbus because he was from Northern Italy and Furio from the South but didn’t understand why Americans would hate Columbus. Hesh and the Cuban get into it because the Cuban guy referred to genocide of a tribe in Cuba and Hesh thought it was demeaning the genocide during WWII.

Tony’s rant at the end of the episode is my favorite Sopranos scene of all time.

He is not a conservative. He started out as a Dimocrat. I think he still supports abortion on demand.

I know that. Still, he’s more often right than wrong on many issues that we care about. He may not be “pure” but he’s both smart and perceptive on national defense and fiscal sanity, two things that I personally find of paramount importance.

I’v known about Halbritter for a long time. He’s just a lawyer who grabs the casino money generated by the Oneidas, then recycles it into political donations to Democrats.

The Six Nations backed the British

As from the local area, I would like to set the record straight. Although many of the tribes did fight with the British, the Oneidas are known in history as "Our first allies" and fought beside General Herkimer at the Battle of Oriskany and also fought at Saratoga.

I mention this only in support for the Oneida Nation and not Mr Halbritter. Utica/Rome,NY area has been hit hard the last 20 years with the loss of manufacturing and a devistating closing of Griffis Air Force Base. The Oneidas created Turning stone Casino employing in the thousands with decent paying jobs for the local area.

By the way I am of Portuguese decent and I don't have a drop of Oneida in me. Just a local who has a deep interest in the Mohawk Valley's history.

Thank you for the clarification. I assumed that all six of the Iroquois Nations had moved to Brantford and Ohsweken after the war.

He had one when invited to the WH recently.

I for one am enjoying the contrast between George Will and Charles on many topics.

Will is right to the point, and Charles is being very predictive.

Almost like he was told what the deal would be during the WH visit, and asked to soften any criticism directed towards O himself.

Hence the “ Repubs are bad” meme he appears to be on.

Ah, yes, the “Fugowie”, probabally the original “Lost Tribe”. Disappeared somewhere around what is now New Jersey or lower New York, I believe. Such a shame.
