The FCC is just another part of the box that chooses to identify natives only in the image that is politically correct for them and the Federal government. Used as a tool for business commerce, you are right on target. We need our own broadcasting station which can be transmitted to all tribes. Communication between the tribes is vital to the success of attaining our sovereignty. One thing though, in a military sense, disrupting the enemies communications is vital when achieving victory. It prevents the enemy from developing a structural planned defense or offence to combat the opposing force. Do you really think the feds want to take their hands out the pockets of Native American affairs? American Indian lands hold a vast amount of natural resources which are vital to economic stability as a reserve for the United States. To become organized and think for ourselves would be detrimental to the feds. The Corbel settlement fell far short of Native American needs. All nations involved need to push for an injunction to have a Native American Television network added as part of the settlement which can be transmitted to all tribes for the purpose of education, health, business commerce and public information. The federal government has a vast amount of unused communication equipment. The development of a Native American Transmitting signal would unite the tribes and significantly increase the livelihood of our people.
