Nothing better to do?

Native Americans have historically been sorely handled by America. Only someone in a state of denial would try to claim otherwise.

Native American communities furthermore have many pressing needs and problems, many of which require government help and intervention.

It is thus reasonable to ask what burning need justifies intervention by the Montana Human Rights Bureau into what a school's athletic teams are called in a town on Flathead Reservation. One would think that a town that is 1/3 Native American would be perfectly capable of working this one out for itself. But then, minding one's own business is an increasingly lost art.

So is prioritization.
