In The Hoop
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2001

Welcome to In The Hoop, Indianz.Com's occasional column about assorted Indian issues.

In The Hoop: The Scorecard
Is it Friday already? That means it's time for the weekly list of the movers and shakers in Indian Country and beyond.

The Winners
Republican Lawmakers - You wanted top-to-bottom reform of the Bureau of Indian Affairs? Well you got it now.

White People - You wanted the Bureau of Indian Affairs to go away? Well you got it now.

Former President Ronald Reagan - A commission you created wanted the Bureau of Indian Affairs dismantled and an Indian trust administration developed? You get the picture.

The Department of Interior - Even though you've been criticized over and over for your handling of the trust fund, you've managed to spend more than $800 million dollars and take more than eight years to do absolutely nothing. Congratulations.

The Losers
Indian Country - So much for tribal consultation! The Bush administration's proposal seems about as close to termination as you can get.

Indian Employees - So much for Indian preference! A group of senior Interior officials have managed to rewrite your job descriptions in one fell swoop.

Assistant Secretary Neal McCaleb - So much for sticking by your Senate testimony! What a difference four months makes.

Special Trustee Tom Slonaker - So much for that secretarial order! When are you going to step down?
