PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. — A piece of property considered a safe place for Nisqually Tribal members suffering from COVID-19 has been closed over safety reasons, according to Nisqually Tribe Chairman Willie Frank, III.
Frank said the 26-acre property near Roy, Wash., has been used to provide living space for Tribal members who need to quarantine from other family or community members.
After the Tribe started removing trees on the property this month, the RVs and cabins in the area became more visible from Highway 702.
Last weekend, several videos appeared on social media sites suggesting the project was new, raising questions about whether the site was being built to house unvaccinated citizens.
One post called it a concentration camp. “Burn it,” said one commenter on a Facebook video post.
“Who does that,” said Nisqually Tribal Councilmember Hanford McCloud, “It’s beyond ridiculous.”
Across the country, there are thousands of reports of Native Americans missing. But for a long time, what has been a crisis on Indian reservations has been widely ignored.
Thanks to grassroots efforts drawing more attention to these cases, there are members of law enforcement and some lawmakers paying attention and working to turn awareness about missing and murdered indigenous women, men, girls and boys into action.
Patsy Whitefoot, a citizen of Yakama Nation, is among the leaders advocating on behalf of the missing. Whitefoot is still waiting for any word about what happened to her sister, Daisy Mae Heath.
“She left one day, and so I just thought well she might be in the mountains, because it was toward the end of summer, because it was still time for picking. Or she could have gone hunting,” Whitefoot explained.

Exactly! The aca was meant to install the Health dictatorship of the proletariat.

What do you believe is the appropriate coarse of action to achieve a positive resolution?
Leave medical decisions between patients and their doctors.
Like we've done for decades.
We were there a couple years ago. The traffic is horrendous and people drive scary! The state is both beautiful and scary. We got lost driving to a wedding in the interesting park of Ft Weldon, and had to stop for directions and the guy at the gas station told us that sometimes traffic gets stopped at the bridge and I kid you not ... for submarines to pass through... and wouldn’t you know we got held up at the bridge and the wedding party held up the wedding so we could get there. True story.

Washington is sort of like a beautiful home constructed around an open cess pit. Seattle politics control the state and, let's be honest here, Seattle is a sh_thole. A reeking, festering, disgusting #hole of a city. Once, not even that long ago, it was a beautiful albeit quirky place... then the Californiacators, drug addicts, perverts, and brain dead took over and it rapidly became a #hole. Unfortunately, the region has dominated the rest of the state policy wise... I'm sure *most* of the population east of the Cascades wouldn't mind seeing the ocean open up and swallow Seattle, Olympia, Tacoma, and half of Bellevue into the abyss just so they can be rid of the racism, crime, and liberal fascism that area curses the rest of the state with.
It's a real shame, shame of the Pacific Northwest, in fact.
