The unfortunate part is trying to get tribes to unite. For example, my tribe is nearly extinct, there are many confirmed descendants but very few of them want to have anything to do with us. Some local Native American Indian groups and tribes have found our continued existence to be a threat to them and we are called liars and asked to go away. It falls into the way the capitalist governments what the people to behave; to fight each other and force each other to accept the way of life they have chosen, even if it violates the very laws they created in the first place. that is the case in the United States and in Florida. they say a signed, written document made between two parties is a legally binding contract yet Florida and Marion County have violated three contracts with us and the Federal government will do nothing about it. The state even insists it is above the Constitution and encourages the county to threaten to take away the lands we legally purchase for our new nation if we exercised our right to refuse to pay their taxes (we are a registered non-profit and yet they passed laws, violating their 14th amendment to defraud and extort money from their citizens). It is the tribes who have the knowledge of the ancient ways that will survive the upcoming fall of the capitalist civilization, yet they teach their people to depend completely upon the government rather than themselves. Is there any wonder why it is so difficult to unite?
