    The Obama administration will pay the Navajo Nation a record $554 million to settle claims by the most populous Native American tribe that funds and natural resources on its reservation were mismanaged by the US government for decades.

    I found the "shadow report" (which is not an official approved statement of the CERD) here: http://www.chiricahuaapache.org/downloads/INT_CERD_NGO_VAT_22151_E.pdf

    I've skimmed it and find some of what it says concerning local practices by certain Catholic missionaries which occurred 250+ years ago to be generally valid. However, blaming the entirety of Euro conquest and domination on the Inter Catera of 1493 is far fetched; that papal bull was ignored by every country with the Spanish and Portuguese entering into the Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 which effectively overrode it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inter_caetera

    In any case, it is exceedingly unlikely that anything the RCC said would have dissuaded the Euro powers from conquering the New World.

    It would be rare indeed that events of four to six centuries in the past could be properly accounted for.
