Political Challenge

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

During some reading on the Cobell Case which was a lawsuit against the "USCA" [U.S. Corruption Agency  :D ]  l read this neo-colonial worldviewed "5 Civilized Tribes". Tribes which were similar to colonial views about gov't and such. Choctaw, Seminole, Cherokee ...

This is a century before the "white man's burden" garbage of the late 19th Century.

So here's the challenge: Name "5 Humanitarian Gov'ts".

Switzerland is the only one l can think of.

My tribal government. We have a pretty good crew now.

( The so-called " Five Civilized" were so named by whites because they were agricultural and , often under duress, adopted a lot of the customs of the invaders after contact. Actually there were plenty of other agricultural tribes ,but some of the Euros had not met them yet. I personally don't think the governments of the native nations mentioned were much like those of the Europeans at the time. Now the term " Five Civilized" is considered racially charged in some circles or simply understood to be  anthropologically ignorant or prejudicial in others. It isn't considered a insult, though, AFAIK.

BTW....I'm not "civilized". Lol. A couple of other folk here are.

Cobell settlement money is nice. If a government does not want to get sued ( or Siouxed) it should keep its paws out of native lease accounts. Lol.)
