The aboriginal people in Canada are not in the same situation, but have similar problems regarding land claims and such. How fast we forget that without Natives, the Europeans would have died of starvation, cold, scurvy, and from many other health problems. The Europeans had no idea how to live in the boreal forest when they first got there and the different groups and tribes helped them survive only to be introduced to alcohol, lies, and later attempted genocide...
BTW I know because i live with and work for these people...

Sadly we NA's are not as Sovran as you would think...
we still are (Laughingly) American citizens therefore subject to the laws of the land... in other words commit a federal crime...i.e. growing pot, brewing moonshine or opening brothels and the FBI will come onto Indian land and haul you off... Of course those rules only extend to punishment, not protection...

Canadian aboriginals get so much funding for the government it boggles my mind. School is free, rent is free, books, exempt from many tax laws...Yet native students still do not perform compared to others.
All I'm saying is that throwing money at it will not solve the problem.
