Many tribes are buying into the "economic development" scheme to "improve" their communities. Once in, they are to behave as partners to the big companies and governments and do not want to jeopardize the relationship by supporting Indian Sovereignty ideals. Why is it necessary to be rich with money??? Why do our nations need to look Western in order to be perceived as successful??? Is it not good enough to be healthy, happy and grateful for creation anymore??? I, too believe that its time for the indigenous nations on each continent to unite. It sounds daunting but I believe it has to be the traditional governments or leaders that need to guide the stand for our survival as a unique people.
