One of the problems is that where there are jobs to be had, they get shipped overseas for slave labor wages. Most people today are not taught the values of hard work, thrift, and self-reliance like they were 50+ years ago. People used to be able to rely on themselves for what they needed. Hunting, gathering, gardening, tool making, crafts, sewing, canning, the list goes on and on. Today, people are being marketed a life-style of leisure, entertainment, and consumerism. Maybe the best thing Native Americans and mainstream Americans can do is employ the tried and true old values of hard work and self-reliance.
