“Pam’s reflection just made me thinking about the 1920’s oil extractions from Indian country, in particular in this section of the country. Which caused all sorts of issues, in reference to checker-boarding of reservations (privatization), increased violence, for some wealth, understanding that some tribes still make money off these resource extractive industries (for some the only money that allows them to provide vital resources). In this way a just transition for Indian country really means a grappling with the loss some tribes would face without extraction (this is where Indian country can differ from other redline communities) all of this I think would be helpful in understanding the complexity of resources, poverty and oil in Indian Country.”
