This is just rape of the land and sad and pathetic that people allow their kids to take part in this. That's not what indigenous culture is about. Our ancestors would be very ashamed. Many trees are cut down for this and many habitats destroyed. All for selfish greed because people can't play a game in natural surroundings. It seems a lot of indigenous people allow themselves to be intimidated by whites because they think they are smarter and are more classy and intellectual. It's a selfish game and a waste of time.
