Government Reference and International Publications of the Center For World Indigenous Studies :

Excerpt
Excerpt: In this paper, I discuss my perception of racism on the Flathead Reservation in Montana, a reservation jointly occupied by Indians and whites. Focusing on personal experiences of racism from my youth to my present tenure as an employee for the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, I attempt to provide a rational explanation for these experiences. In trying to understand racial tension and animosity one correlate is easily identifiable: as our Tribal Government becomes more assertive in exercising Tribal sovereignty, the opposition heightens. Although it is not our intention to incite xenophobia on the part of whites living on the Reservation, such a condition has developed as we have increased the exercise of our rights to function as a sovereign Indian government. Our ultimate end of self-governance is not designed to destroy our neighbors, but to protect our cultural identity and maintain our integrity as Salish, Kootenai, and Pend d'Oreilles peoples.
