veterans tribal cemetery bill

This will be great news. The cemeteries won’t be huge national cemeteries. But now the developing or improvement of veterans’ gravesites can be supported. Let’s hope the law also applies to tribal governments in Alaska (all but one do not have lands under their jurisdiction, i.e., are not “Indian country”)

A bill that would enable American Indian veterans to be buried on their tribal lands passed Congress on Saturday and awaits President Bush’s signature to become law.

The Native American Veterans Cemetery Act, a bill sponsored by U.S. Rep. Tom Udall, D-N.M., allows tribes to apply for grants to establish, expand or improve tribal veterans’ cemeteries on trust land. Currently, tribal governments are not eligible for money from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the bill would put tribes on the same level as states.
