The more accurate term for indians is americans or early americans. Everyone else, please refer to yourself as new americans or late americans. no or maybe the more accurate term exists in the native tongue.

Yes, they do use night vision/infrared. You will see them out in their trucks at night. If you light something that seems suspicious you may be approached even if you didn't know anyone was watching. However, I do not believe you can legally fuck out in the open esplanade style anymore. . If you are...

On the race issue, every resident in this nation is an immigrant or descendants of immigrants, even " native americans". Genetic studies have shown tribal ancestors came fron Asia.

You are being deliberately obtuse and offensive by using a term that is used as a racially offensive epithet towards Native Americans in a mild attempt to be humorous. Shame on you. You should feel like the fucking idiot that you are.

It is my understanding that the BMO and related organizations do a lot for the locals (I'm assuming this is tribes too). Like solar projects and others I have read about and can't recall now.
