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.
Looks good written down but your "theory" (and that's all it is) has one major flaw. No way can this happen let's say on Pine Ridge because that is where I'm more familiar with. No way can an extra three babies per Lakota home (which would be an amazing idea to the older population )

Let's say that the birth population did start to increase like you say....in the mean time of your "40 years" prophesy.. what about the poor health care, poor housing conditions, ever increasing drug and alcohol usage, increasing aids and deadly std's on the rez? All these are decreasing the population at alarming rates!!

Face it...... as was said..... the white population is going to have to demand change or it's not going to happen in this lifetime.
