Yup.

And since, eventually, that's precisely how it's ALL going to be...

It's not as if living on a rez makes you an Indian and, these days, the idea of a specific and independent "Native community" holding fundamental sway upon someone's social development is archaic (as well as inherently limiting). TRUTH: If your kids are aware that there is an Internet, they're already part of a larger world...

Now, folks can kick around the idea of whether that is better or worse but it is merely reality that it is happening.

Tribes who have progressively recognized this have already moved towards lineage and not fractional thresholds of quantum.
