Consider all the possibilities. The great CCC lodges could make decent destination casinos.

I have met Chuck Sams. He is a stand up good guy. Has a good vision for the land, water, fish, etc. Of course he is human like all of us and he is going to have to get the massive federal bureaucracy to move in a slightly new direction, which is no small task.

I worked with many NW tribes for almost 30 years and observed hundreds of on-the-ground examples of how land and resources are managed and restored by tribal leaders, scientists and general membership. Often in collaboration with local, state and federal goverment entities, not-for-profits, citizen groups and environmental organizations. As many of the tribal folks will tell you, things wax and wane within the tribal societies as well as in the general non-tribal societies. But if the question is who would fare best with managing the National Parks over the long term, I come down firmly on the side of the tribes.

 

Details would need to negotiated, such as use of roads through the parks and what to do with parks whose original indigenous inhabitants were extirpated. Perhaps a 10 year dual management system, while usage and funding is worked out. The federal government has a long history of not living up to the financial promises and responsibilities to tribes and public lands. A permanent and fully adequate funding stream would need to be put in place.

 

So yes, this both could and would work.

In my little part of Oregon the tribes have done some good things.....

 

My only cause for hesitation in supporting things tribal is that the tribes have done lots of things because they have the Enormous Funding of their gambling casinos......

 

Gambling is an addiction and I feel that making BIG bucks from it is an unfortunate way for any governmental entity to function.

I agree. I was thinking why not keep funding the same (or increased by need). It is all our land now... I would like to see the stewardship given back to the original owners with the deal that they now have a say with their values in how it will be preserved.

One of the basic tenants of many indigenous belief systems is that no humans " own the land."
