Gache.. Sometimes I think you over think things. I just feel a population boom to become a bigger political entity is irresponsible. There is a lack of jobs around reservations already. Twice the population just means that many more out of work, that many more living in poverty, that many children that have to suffer. It's not in any treaty agreements to create work for us to help improve our living situations. Federal help with housing, health care and education needs to be better, but it won't improve problem with poverty. This is why so many tribes seem to be going with casinos these days. Not just because they might get some per cap, but because it does bring jobs, revenue and money to the community. And that's what we need more than a population boom. Well, actually education would in the long run help improve the poverty situation, if that person goes on to a higher education, graduates and brings back that knowledge to their community and applies it there (examp: comes back and gets a job teaching school, comes back with a nursing or doctor degree and works in their community, comes back with business or engineering skills and creates businesses in the community that can prosper).


Mato.. that one man on Pine Ridge who was growing hemp... that is one of the greatest ideas that has been done. With the growing need for commercial hemp and all the ways it can be applied to life, this is a crop that should be allowed to be grown by the indigenous nations! In fact if they would quit illegally raiding the man, he could make enough to start hireing others to help him grow larger crops, and eventually either earn enough or get a loan to open a processing plant there on the reservation creating even more jobs and revenue.. and eventually have folks make products as well creating more jobs.
