IACA Board Under Attack For Supporting P.L. 101-644

Recently, the Indian Arts and Crafts Board has been under attack through Vermont newspapers for it’s stand in requiring artisans protected under the Act to be members of a Federal or State recognized tribe - and not individuals who self-identify as Indians and who are not members of a recognized tribe. Who are these individuals and organizations that have made the attacks?

My prediction if these groups continue to be appeased: about 2050: who will be considered *Indians*: the entire U.S. population!!
