A senior USACE official told me the shoreline (either 75' or 150' wide) is fed property for public use when allowed by the Fed. This applies to all navigable waterways (can float a 6"log six months of each year). By Fed law the water and shore are public property. ND does not honor that shoreline rule on the Missouri River 4 some unknown reason. This could answer the shoreline part of the discussion. If Chief Joseph were wrong, nomads could claim any land they traveled upon. I am just one German with grandparents displaced by the opression of Germans by Russians circa 1900. What is mine?

"If we ever owned the land we own it still, for we never sold it. In the treaty councils the commissioners have claimed that our country had been sold to the government. Suppose a white man should come to me and say, Joseph, I like your horses, and I want to buy them. Then he goes to my neighbor and says to him; Joseph's horses. I want to buy them, but he refuses to sell. My neighbor answers, Pay me the money and I will sell you Joseph's horses. The white man returns to me, and says, Joseph, I have bought your horses and you must let me have them. If we sold our lands to the government, this is the way they were bought." --Chief Joseph-Nez Perce

Native American Quotes About Land Ownership "Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." --Ancient Indian Proverb

"The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers, he belongs just as the buffalo belonged..." --Luther Standing Bear

"What is this you call property? It cannot be the earth, for the land is our mother, nourishing all her children, beasts, birds, fish and all men. The woods, the streams, everything on it belongs to everybody and is for the use of all. How can one man say it belongs only to him?" -Massasoit

"One does not sell the land people walk on." --Crazy Horse

"I want the land and the minerals returned to the original landowners," said Theodora Bird Bear, Mandaree.
