    The American Indians on the reservations in Southern California, I thought, were moved there from other areas in america. I question whether they have relatives across the border. As far as the Indians who live on reservations, not those who live in the city and outside the reservation, California has the largest percentage living on reservations. They live on the worst piece of desert in the state. I am glad Obama compensated the others on reservations for the oil and gas property that they once owned. Mexicans, although Indians, and probably half-Indian, half-Spaniards, have never lived on a reservation. They were brought here as cheap labor and never given citizenship, with the understanding that they would return to Mexico. However, many did not return to Mexico and remained as illegals. Fifty years from now, one-third? of our poulation will be Hispanic; I would expect they will become part of the middle class and educated. They consider themselves hispanic white, because they are probably all half Spaniards, since the Spanish almost genocided the 100% Indians and the half-bloods replaced them? Big demographic change is going to take place; better to have our citizens educated.
