Muslim would donate land seized from tribes for Indian hospital

You have to admit: Hani Shafai has balls.

Tribal nations trapped in western South Dakota want to take over management of Sioux San Hospital in Rapid City because the GOP and the state's earth hater governor loathe American Indians.
Local developer Hani Shafai previously confirmed to the Journal that he has offered to donate some east-side land for the project, in an area between Menards and Western Dakota Technical Institute. Federal law allows tribes to assume control of Indian Health Service facilities through an arrangement known as a 638 contract (the number is derived from the enabling federal law).
Read it here.

The land Shafai would give back to the tribes was seized from them after the Fort Laramie Treaty was abrogated by Congress and gold discovered in the Black Hills. A Palestinian Muslim and Future Fund recipient, Shafai has plucked myriad cushy plums in Pennington County and has showered the current South Dakota governor with generous campaign contributions.

While the Palestinian homeland looks like holes in the slice of Swiss cheese analogous to the illegal Israeli state, progress toward resolutions of Native trust disputes would have far more political traction after tribes secede from the States in which they reside and then be ratified to form one State, the 51st, sans contiguous borders with two Senators and two House members as there are an estimated 2.5 million indigenous living on reservations.

South Dakota's previous governor showered $75 million in Future Fund cash on campaign donors without disclosing who they were.
