protect them in the future if the threat of logging etc becomes apparent.
man. that's the problem.
How can someone tell people that have been living somewhere for THOUSANDS of years
Modern Man- "you don't own this land"
Tribal Dude - "oh, and you do?"
Modern Man - "yeah, its mine"
Tribal Dude - "nope, I'd say its mine. You see my tribe has walked/hunted/lived/died/born on/buried on this land since time eternal"
Modern Man - " do you have the deed?"
Tribal Dude - "wtf?"
Modern Man - "this piece of paper says I am the owner."
Tribal Dude - " I thought possession was 9/10ths law"
Modern Man -"Too bad, I have a piece of paper, what do you have"
Tribal Dude - "I have spear"
