This week, BTR features citizens of the Oneida Indian Nation in New York and the Ramapough Lenape Nation in New Jersey. Oneida is a federally recognized tribe, which makes them eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). Despite tax and educational benefits awarded to some of the tribes (about two thirds are federally funded according to the BIA), American Indians have the highest rates of poverty, unemployment and disease of any ethnic group in America. Another struggle includes the difficulty of maintaining a cultural identity due to the loss of native languages, which many young American Indians are no longer taught.
