To clarify, I'm only talking about the Navajo Nation....pretty much all we see around here.
There was a sizable Native population when i lived in Ketchikan Alaska years ago. They were nice enough for the most part, virtually all the females were fat as hell (except one who was in a wheel chair, she was actually pretty hot). Probably 99% of them were raging alcoholics and very few of them worked even though there was plenty of work available up there at that time.
Once a year (springtime I think) the Fed Govt. would give each of them a big check. Every man, woman and child got like $5,000 or something. This was in addition to the yearly oil dividend check that every native born Alaskan gets from the state. Rather this check was just for Indians because we were on "their land" or something. For about three weeks they'd go on an epic bender buying booze, dope, and all sorts of crazy shite. They'd do things like go and buy a four wheeler and then abandon it when they run it out of gas. After like three weeks the money would be gone and they'd be back to living off normal old fashioned welfare & food stamps.
