Electoral college votes the way of the majority of that state. Some heavy indian states are becoming the indian swing vote. Lets say the sioux of south dakota decide to triple their birth rate and everyone moves home 100,000 lakota 500,000 whites. The white population there has been stagnant or decreasing for 100 years. 100,000 lakota
10 years from now 130,000 lakota
20 years from now 169,000 lakota
30 years from now 217,000 lakota
40 years from now 280,000 lakota
Easily by now you have a large enough voting block to control the destiny of south dakota since the white population would be divided and no other sizable minority exists thats 3 legislators in congress for indians.

Politics of numbers blackbear pure and simple. The reason why politicians dont consider us a big deal is because indians arent united and are little islands. What did all that money that indians gave abramhoff do. Absolutely nothing. The whites used the indians like they always do and played one tribe off another.

Steel blackbear Steel is far more superior a weapon than a warclub ask the spanish who wiped out huge numbers of indians and they had much more primitive guns. Military tactics is a military technology and whites military strategy was superior at the time to indians. They had one we didnt.

Encroachment I was talking about language and culture not land. Numbers have preserved language and culture for the lakota and navaho but the iroquois have little of either because they are spread out in 50 different locations. Little islands means death.

Federal recognition? Why blackbear what does that do for us?
The lumbee are better off than most tribes without the federal recognition because they survive and thrive on independence while most federal indians live with the expectation and right of government subsidy. Federal recognition is useless. In fact I wish we would quit.


Look at the jews they are successful because they congregate and stick together we dont. Thats why we are losing.
