This article discusses the issues raised when Indians --- who are receiving federal or state welfare assistance -- receive claims judgment monies, lease or royalty payments from trust lands, and damage awards in actions brought by the United States on their behalf. The article concludes that conflict between the rights that an Indian has due to his Indian status and the rights that he has as a citizen are unavoidable and these benefits and burdens must be reconciled as well as they can.
