Federal Indian policy’s infringement on individuality, liberty and property is the reason many Native Americans continue to struggle in poverty. Through a systematic literature review, it is demonstrated that allowing property rights for individual members, and removing the financial incentive for tribal leaders to use tribal members, and especially children as property, would both vastly improve the economy and preserve to people their God-given right to life, faculties, and production. This would be a significant first step to unlocking real self-determination, human potential and ingenuity, as well as correct the long-standing policies that have robbed generations of Indian people of the wealth and opportunity that this country has granted to countless others.
