Treathyl Fox's insight:
"Currently there are 562 tribal governments in the United States recognized by the federal government. Each tribe can form its own government and enforces its own laws, establishes its own taxes and regulates its own activities." That's interesting. So if this can be accomplished in America, other countries with tribal communities ( "Afghanistan's tribal groups" http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/1658073.stm ) should just copy the Native Americans. Sounds easy enough!
