SAN FRANCISCO -- The United States Government position today in Apache Stronghold vs U.S. in the Appeal  hearing in the 9th Circuit Court confirmed that the destruction of Apache Religion is not a  concern of the U.S Government and is not an obligation of the U.S., confirming the fact that  oppression of Native people is not, never was and will not stand in the way of their actions.

"We knew where we stood all along, now the U.S. Government admits that we do not matter and that they own all federal land and the decisions about the land, our connection to it is not  of their concern."
