I completely agree that our number one focus needs to be the well-being of our tribal nations, and that getting caught up in american politics can be a distraction. In terms of genuine dependency on federal resources, I think that is an important point of discussion as well. I think that those who are in that situation are really vulnerable. I hope that their tribal leaders will be able to find a way for them to be able to either subsist off of the land they live on, or create entreprenuerial enterprises so that they can be financially independent from handouts. Self-reliance begets freedom. Blessings.
