Treaty Obligations (80122-GM-R9999)
Whereas; The United States government has failed to honor its obligations in treaties adopted by Congress with Indian tribes; and
Whereas; Treaty agreements are solemn promises and must be honored; and
Whereas; The United Methodist Church has long been a champion of American Indian rights;
THEREFORE; Be it resolved, that the United Methodist Church calls on the United States government to review treaty obligations and determine a course of action to be taken to honor the promises made to our Native American Indian People.
