Bureau of Indian Affairs: Native Americans have been farming and ranching for hundreds of years. Here is Louie Pierre, a farmer on the Flathead Reservation in Montana around 1920. Native American farmers and ranchers claim that USDA officials discriminated against American Indians.

Black farmers have made similar claims and Friday the U.S. Senate approved the settlement in that case.
