of Indian Affairs, the National Congress of American Indians, and the National Indian Gaming Association, are helping Native Americans to advance? Explain your answer. If anything, what are organizations like these doing to mitigate tribal poverty and encourage prosperity? Answer: I feel that the native American Organizations, like the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), and the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), all have helped the Native Americans to advance into society. The BIA was created in 1824 which helped coordinate the government’s relations with the Native American tribes. This was created to help promote peace with the tribes and the government. The NCAI was then founded in 1944. According to Schaefer, R.T. (2006), “The NCAI registered itself as a lobby in Washington D.C., hoping to make the Native American perspective heard in the aftermath of the Reorganization Act.” It helped create the Indian Claims Commission which allowed tribes to have their cases heard in court instead of just being dismissed. It is still the most important civil rights organization for Native Americans. The NIGA is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1985 that was created to allow the Native American tribes to try and fight poverty by making income from the gaming industry. It helps to try and advance the lives of Native American tribes economically, socially, and politically. Of course these gaming establishments are regulated. Question 2: Consider the choices of Native Americans who decide to stay on their tribe's native land or reservation, and those who choose to relocate to a city. If you were presented with this decision, which would you choose and why? Cite your sources according to APA requirements. Answer: I think that I was presented the decision to stay on my tribe’s native land or reservation or relocating to an urban city, I would probably choose to stay on my tribe’s land or reservation. Although many of these reservations are poverty stricken, it does not affect anyone outside of the reservation where it may if I were living in an urban area. If I was proud of my heritage and of my tribe, even though there may be hardships, I would rather fight through those times and work to make our lives better than to leave all of that behind and try to find my place in society, which is very difficult for most Native Americans because it is hard to embrace your culture in an urban environment. I would no longer be surrounded by those that are proud of their culture and work along each other to embrace
It would feel like I left a large part of myself behind if I were part of a tribe and made the decision to relocate to a city.and fight for that culture. .
