They rely on money from the government (tax payers money) but they are their own sovereign nation with their own laws and regulations. Why are we giving them money??? If the Indian people (of which I'm one by the way) want to govern their own people, then let them raise their own money. A federal marshal is the only one that can serve warrants on their lands, but they want the money that the taxpayers pay to the federal government to fund roads, our country's military and other vital services??? This is crazy. If you want to be a separate country within our country, the least you can do is raise your own money and quit counting on ours.
