You talk of state recognized tribes, in general, as if they were all just a bunch of false Cherokee social clubs. Let me remind you of groups such as the Pamunkey and Mattaponi of Virginia. Who's tiny state reservations are the only remnants left from the Powhatan chiefdom. Those are Pocahontas's people. They had treaties with the British that the USA did not assume responsibility for. Not to mention all the other Virginia Indian tribes. What magic will happen to their genes and blood latter this year when the congress votes to finally recognize them? none.
