Good God, what a load of bellicose garbage: this entire thread. Folks care so much about the intellectual masturbation of proving tiny irrelevant points that the entire strategic vantage is lost.

This isn't about anything beyond "what is an Indian."

If your answer involves a 3rd party, your head is in your posterior. Why does ANYONE care about federal recognition? "$$$." Now, I'm fine with that but admit what you are: like KiowaKat, a racial whore.

The truth is that those who wail the most about the Federal government's ability to define who/what they are remain those who -- invariably -- have the weakest bloodlines and hark back to rolls to justify a meager quantification like 1/∞.

At this point, I just don't care and, if we truly control our own destiny, neither should ANY of us.

But we're lead around by the $$$.

That's OUR weakness as Native people. Until we get past it, we'll continue to fight each other.
