The Native Americans' Struggle for Economic Self-Sufficiency

(1992)  Approximately one-third of reservation-based tribes live on resource-rich lands, mainly in the

Southwest and Northwest, some with abundant minerals, timber, or other natural resources. The majority of Native Americans, however, are resource-poor, inhabiting lands of little value, some virtually uninhabitable in the remote reaches of the Dakotas, Montana, and Arizona.
