Yeah, that's where alot of this is coming from really.

People who make the claims just to give themselves more credibility so that they can make money doing something, like teaching or presentations and things along those lines. And then you have those who go out and make up a "tribe" so that they can get "Federal" funds.

I've told this story many times: I was at a function with the center one day and a guy came up and asked the director of the youth program how he could go about getting a tribe together so that he could put up a casino and make money for the town that he lived in. I about fell over, I just walked away and let my friend handle it.LOL That's alot of what's going on.

I did what you did once. A woman came into the youth program to "Teach" the kids about something and my friend, whose from OK, called me and asked me to make a point to be there. I wasn't gonna be there 'cause I had just got home that morning from visiting my family in NC and I was tired. Well, I went and this woman started talking about something that I had just talked to one of my Uncles about and she was telling it all wrong, when I corrected her and backed it up with a name that they all knew, things changed suddenly. 6 Months later I got informed that that incident had been brought up at a board meeting to get some of us out of the program. Luckily for me, I had been there a long time and they knew that I'm not a mean or hateful person.LOL And I know many of the board members who really went to bat for me. And I was just a volunteer.LMAO

But she was combining several different "Tribes" and not talking about just one.LOL
