    Federal government keeps Native people in poverty

    Shawn Regan of the Property and Environment Research Center explains how federal policies keep Native Americans in poverty:
        Indian lands are owned and managed by the federal government.
        The government is the legal owner of all land and assets in Indian Country and is required to manage them for the benefit of Indians. But because Indians do not generally own their land or homes on reservations, they cannot mortgage their assets for loans like other Americans. This makes it incredibly difficult to start a business in Indian Country.
