It's stupid to stay on reservations, they stifle opportunity.
Where I won't agree with you is clinging on to a "dead" culture. Personally, I retain 0% of my native culture (because being honest I look Scottish as hell and act American as hell) but I don't think the culture is inferior or dead or anything.

Canada's treatment of First Nations is pretty ugly, especially the first three quarters of the 20th century. There is huge sensitivity to that here. Also, Indians make up about 30% of this areas population, they resent being called "east Indian" as my friend Bondhar says "I know of no one born in east India."
You simply don't use terms like that here.

Some will boycott, while several times more will make a point to support FedEx.
Time to buy some FedEx stock.
