Interview on CBC radio this evening with the chairwoman of the Burns Paiute Tribe, Charlotte Rodrique:
An Oregon native tribe has some harsh words for the militia group that has taken over a wildlife refuge. The Burns Paiute tribe says the land in question belongs to them and the armed ranchers should stand down.
The group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge are protesting the federal government's use of the land and have stated they're not leaving.
Rodrique doesn't mince words when asked who the land belongs to. "We claim it. Aboriginal. People native to this land. People with a 15,000 year history in the area. It's our aboriginal territory."
