Editor's Pick http://knau.org en For Native Americans, Mental Health Budget Cuts Hit Hard http://knau.org/post/native-americans-mental-health-budget-cuts-hit-hard Native American tribes gave up millions of acres to the federal government in the 19th century in exchange for promises of funded health care, education and housing.
