Bureau of Indian Affairs and Department of Interior

The Deparment of the Interior oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs oversees land for Tribes prior to the land becomeing "trust" land. How is the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Department of the Interior supportive of this project when they describe their missions as "community based programs" and that they fulfill "their committment to the American People?"
Both the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs are clearly NOT supporting our community in this proposed jail project and they are DEFINATELY NOT committed to the "American People" if this proposed jail project goes through.
See information below on the Department of Interior:
