How well do you think Native American organizations, like the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), and the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), are helping Native Americans to advance? Explain your answer. If anything, what are organizations like these doing to mitigate tribal poverty, and encourage prosperity?

It's always interesting to me that people seem to misplace a couple of the letters in a rather important word. They always say and write "gaming" when they are really referring to "gambling." I wonder why that is? PC euphemism at work?

Consider the choices of Native Americans who decide to stay on their tribe's native land (reservation) and those who choose to relocate to a city. If you were presented with this decision, which would you choose and why?

  1. Bureau within the US Department of the Interior responsible for administering federal programmes for recognized American Indian ethnic groups, and for promoting American Indian self-determination. Created on 11 March 1824, its primary responsibility has been to ‘civilize’ and educate American Indians, although it has also administered treaty negotiations, regulated and licensed trade with American Indians, controlled liquor in Native areas, settled land disputes, and implemented the allotment system of the Dawes Act of 1887 and the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934. The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) has a responsibility to enhance the quality of life, promote economic opportunities, and protect assets of American Indians and Alaskan Natives. It does so by providing law enforcement, social services, health care facilities, education, housing, and business loans.
