Indian Power

Hometown news that "[t]he Seneca Nation of Indians is building a broad group of supporters for its effort to win the right to run the hydropower project at the dam whose creation flooded the tribe's native lands a half-century ago" — Senecas line up allies for Kinzua bid.

One wonders what the eco-left would say of their nobel savages? This blog supports the bid. Growing up in Western New York, I had the chance to attend a couple of Seneca pow-wows.

Since the American Indians were never that particularly environmentally conscious, this recent move isn't that surprising. And given the wholesale entry of most Native American communities into the professional gambling industry (complete with casinos, some of which are managed by Las Vegas operations), any patina of moral supremacy that the tribes as official government entities may have had has long since worn off.
