TRANSCRIPT

WEALTH VERSUS TRADITION AND THE PLAYGROUND FOR THE SUPER RICH.

THE HAMP TONS ARE PART OF LONG ISLAND AND ALSO A NATIVE TRIBE.

THEIR EFFORTS TO DEFEND THEIR SACRED LAND IS THE FOCUS ON 'CONSCIOUS POINT' THAT AIRS THIS MO MONDAY.

WE HAVE SOME OF THE WEALTHIEST PEOPLE IN THE PLANNEST AND THEN A NATIVE AMERICAN RESERVATION.

THEY HAVE MADE MASSIVE EFFEFFECT EFFORTS TO PROTECT THEIR SITES --

HOW WOULD YOU WANT THE RIGHTS TO BE --

I JUST TOLD YOU.

WHY IS IT FAIR TO CONTINUE ON COMMITTING THIS CRIME OF STOLEN PROPERTY?

JUST BECAUSE YOU STOLE 100 OR SO YEARS AGO DOESN'T MEAN THE CRIME GOES AWAY.

YOU PLAY GOLF, YOU MAKE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WHAT IS FAIR ABOUT THAT.

NOTHING, YOU HAVE TO START FROM SQUARE ONE.
