This article totally glosses over the historical reasons this happened. The US Government sent themselves up as the fiduciary responsible party for Native people and agreed to mange the monies in the best interest of the various (over 400) tribes. When called up do to an accounting, the government could not provide an adequate accounting. The figure Native peoples claim is much larger, but was reduced by the acts of the judge upon the case. Again, Native people in their own land get screwed by the majority government!
