They allow you GST-exemption status, or other things like free post-secondary education, special hunting rights, and other treaty-specific things not always available to other bands.

I have a dozen+ reserves within an hour of me.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
