Will Senator Raud Paul close Haskell Indian Nations University and Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute?
From Senator Raud Paul’s website: “For far too long, the Bureau of Indian Affairs has swindled and mismanaged billions of dollars in Indian trust funds. Former Special Trustee Thomas Slonaker in 2004 testified that the Department of the Interior and the BIA were incapable of reform and were unwilling to hold people accountable for their actions…. Instead of wasting taxpayer funds [by] throwing money into a bureau of corruption and incompetency, eliminate them and allow the tribes to manage their own trust funds independently without government intervention.”
Recently under the watchful eye of the Bureau of Indian Affairs/Education, three new employees were hired at Haskell Indian Nations University. With its current graduate rate (somewhere between one and nine percent) we have to ask is it a school or is it an employment agency?
Here’s great thinking for you. Someone in the Bureau of Indian Education put Venida Chenault in charge (we would laugh if it wasn’t so sad) of Haskell. We were hoping that maybe, just maybe, she would be beamed up onto the U.F.O. with her sister, so far not even the aliens are takers…….
Is Senator Raud Paul right? He certainly could not be proven wrong by the way The Bureau of Indian Affairs/Education is currently running Haskell and Sipi (Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute)( Haskell can’t graduate students, and Sipi isn’t accredited) .
Will Senator Raud Paul close Haskell Indian Nations University and Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute? If he succeeds in closing the Bureau of Indian Affairs he will.
