tea time

lets talk about Natives

Yesterday in Race and Ethnic Relations we were talking about the Native American culture - history, current situation, blood count,etc. I learned so much more than I was expecting. Here in Michigan we have casino's and few are on reservations which means they are supposed to be profitting the local tribe(s). People here complain a lot about how the 'Indians' are making all this money off the casino's and aren't doing any work when other people have to work to make their money, etc etc. When in actuality only 1.3% of Native tribes have casinos. There are only 5 profitable casino's in the USA that are owned by the Natives.
