SCOTUS litigation about Creek reservation in Oklahoma

Interesting articles about a case pending before SCOTUS if I understand it properly.

Not supporting the defendant in the slightest, but it does raise interesting issues about what might happen if the reservation were recognized. Unlike the east, the reservations out west are large and a huge chunk of real estate is on the table.

1. This has a lot of NP attention right now. I too would never defend what these men have done.

Nor do I make any claim of their innocence.

2. I wonder how many other pieces of land out here could be disputed in the same way.

I hadn't heard about this case before, you'd think it would get more press, given what could happen.

3. Based upon what I've been able to glean about where you are...

What do the Dine think about this case?
