This is really contrary to the spirit of indigenous struggles such as the 
kind that Macdonald Stainsby has been writing about. For that matter, 
official indigenous leaders tend to accept such "deals" under duress of the 
kind that led to the vast ceding of land that typically took place in 
Blackfoot country in the 1870s, etc.
