While state and federal public benefits of U.S. citizens are not taxed, the U.S. Treasury still tries to tax tribal public benefits. Attempting to remedy this racial discrimination against American Indian tribes, a bill has been introduced in the U.S. Congress to exclude tribally-funded public benefits from taxation, and to end U.S. Treasury harassment of tribal governments.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
