    North Carolina Rep Grahams Bill HR 736 May 2015
    A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
    AN ACT TO PROVIDE AN EXEMPTION FROM HUNTING, TRAPPING, AND FISHING LICENSE REQUIREMENTS FOR NORTH CAROLINA AMERICAN INDIANS.

    These rights have led to intense opposition and protests from non-Indian hunters and fishermen and state wildlife agencies. Non-Indian hunters and fishermen resent the fact that Indians are not subject to the same state regulations imposed on them. State agencies have protested the fact that legitimate conservation goals are compromised when Indians claimants can hunt and fish without having to follow state wildlife regulations.

    NC-HB 736 proposes no fishing /hunting license requirement for people claiming Indian ancestry in appreciation of their heritage in North Carolina..
    How does this help protect the Wildlife! Loss of state license revenue! Is this Discriminatory based of Race or heritage?
    Only as a result of treaties signed between a tribe and the federal government should any privilege be given, there must be a Legal cause Justification other than Race or Heritage

    Justifying Exempting individuals claiming Indian heritage from a Hunting/Fishing License fees based on a claimed Race or state Indian heritage claim, discriminates against non-Indians ,Blacks,Scotts,Germans et,,,,all fish or hunt,as all citizens are equal when it comes to Paying state fees and Laws. State Ethnic heritage should not be a factor other than If there was some historic Treaty to a Sovereign Nation. These things are based on Sovereignty Treaty Rights not Race. none of the state groups are Sovereign or have historic treaties.

    State TRIBAL recognition was not created to bestows Exemptions from laws or benefits on a special interest group from the fair and equal Laws ,such Laws puts one special interest group Superior to the others and reek of politics.
    Having a claim to indian ancestry alone does not justify exemption to any Laws. State tax revenue belongs to all the people of the state,,shouldn’t they decide such laws. This is a loss of state fee revenue from thousands of recreational users and does nothing to protect Wildlife or promote Unity, it further segregates us all based on claimed ethnicity !
