INFCA is a Native American association that is centered on the idea of developing a viable economy within the Tribes. We do this by providing what is needed to achieve goals that are common to many Tribes and many people, such as greater protection of the environment, greater common resources, and greater general prosperity. We and our tribal members believe such goals are attainable through the development of tribal credit programs, which can advance the financial power of subscribing tribes and tribal members by providing specialized knowledge of grant programs, a network of tribal businesses, credit-union-type financial services, investment and pension opportunities, and finally customized support and consulting to enhance the success of ventures. Additionally, INFCA is designed to participate directly in the necessary transition toward ecologically sound industry and infrastructure by developing an endowed trust that will be used to purchase and manage land for use as a buffalo and wildlife refuge and for the production of renewable energy from wind farms and other sources. Much of Native American development centers on the Tribe as the basic unit to be developed, sacrificing the individual in favor of the government. Most tribal organization and leadership patterns were imposed for the more convenient exploitation by the dominant society. Arguably, Native American poverty reflects this emphasis on the tribe that fails to harness individual effort and free enterprise. The Indian Reorganization Act of the 1930's, sometimes called the "Indian New Deal", has little in it for individual Indians, and provides for a collapsed and highly-centralized hierarchy which spawns at best, socialized governments, and in its worst instances, virtual dictatorships. Not surprisingly, the Lakota, who have a history of decentralized, power-sharing governments, have failed dismally under the Indian Reorganization Act. The Lakota's traditions are based upon the hoop and not the triangle. While the Indian Reorganization Act is applicable to Oklahoma people; there are additional laws unique to Oklahoma, which FDR's social engineers put in place. This law is the Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act of June 26, 1936. This law allowed the revival of the tribal governments in Oklahoma.We all recall that dozens of our Tribes were forced to relocate in Oklahoma. Later, the land base was removed from the Tribes and individuals were allotted land. To remedy the loss of the land base and the spreading and mixing of our Indian people, Section Four of the Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act recognizes the rights of individuals to form cooperatives of ten or more Indians, and the membership can be from different Tribes. Most Oklahoma Indians have removed from their allotments and homelands. We find Chickasaws living in Creek jurisdiction and Osages living in No Mans Land, still other Natives live in "Unassigned Lands". There are additional laws which reinforce Section Four of the Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act. Recently, Senator Nighthorse Campbell succeeded in having passed the Native American Business Development, Trade Promotion and Tourism Act of 2000. This Act recognizes the rights of Native American people to form private or quasi-governmental cooperative associations and corporations. The Act even goes further and establishes the right for Native Americans to establish international trade relations. 
Weakness is overcome when Natives everywhere exercise their strength. This new law coupled with the Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act gives Oklahoma Indians the strongest bundle of rights of Native people anywhere. It is time that we all start working these unique rights we have and begin to exercise our prerogatives. There are many advantages Oklahoma Indians have other than simply the right to operate gaming facilities. These new laws enfranchise us in a new way. We should not forget that the Europeans borrowed from the American Indian the concept of individual liberty. Later, these Euro-Americans took the land, along with both the tribal and individual liberties of the Native American people. During the FDR era the Tribes were given socialist governments. Except in Oklahoma, the right to create Native cooperatives has existed since 1936. These rights were once exercised and there are elders who still recall those experiments in Indian Country prior to World War II. Now we have a Native son who is a Senator, who helped extend the cooperative association right to all Native Americans. Wisely, he fashioned the law to take the authority from the BIA and placed it with the U. S. Department of Commerce and USDA Rural Development. Unfortunately, these programs have not been funded. Congress should fund these new laws because they are the greatest promise to nourish indigenous nations where they can become strongest, at their roots. The cooperative association most resembles our traditional Native economic organization and our American free enterprise system. INFCA Tribal Reserve
 Indigenous Nations Federal Charter Association (INFCA) Tribal Reserve controls five U.S. Treasury-certified Community Development Entities (CDEs) and has equitable ownership in the various INFCA trusts, cooperative associations and tribal Credit Program branches. Tribal Reserve securities are available to qualified investors, tribes, and Native Founders Consultants by private placement. The Tribal Reserve has the authority to create Credit Programs and cooperative associations that stem from U. S. laws, the sovereign right of federally-recognized Tribes, the Federal Corporate Charter of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma, and the Indigenous Nations Federal Credit Program Tribal Reserve Act of 2001. INFCA Buffalo Reserve Trust. The Buffalo Reserve Trust is the Native cultural development and land preservation arm of INFCA. Currently, we have helped to establish a Boy's and Girl's Club in Chickasha, Oklahoma with plans to establish charters with Native communities in Oklahoma City and other towns and cities. We are working with Dartmouth College, Intertribal Wordpath Society, selected tribes, and tribal cultural groups to establish specialized language immersion courses for Native language teachers. We assist in establishing and supporting cultural and environmental preservation groups. We have supported the following not-for-profit groups with legal infrastructure and business support: • Caddo Nation of Oklahoma
• Oklahoma Renewable Energy Council (OREC)
• Oklahoma Sustainable Network (OSN) 
• Fellowship of American Indian Church (FAIC)
• Native American Boys and Girls Clubs. The Buffalo Reserve Trust is established to obtain lands for siting commercial wind turbines and raising bison for INFCA members use, to include residential communities. Another goal is to assist Native American artists and crafts people by establishing Indian art galleries in foreign countries for the sale of Native works. The Buffalo Reserve Trust is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) entity, as well as a protected Native American trust. Twenty-five percent of INFCA Tribal Reserve net revenue, and twenty-one percent of the total dividends which are currently reserved for tribal subscription, are dedicated to the Buffalo Reserve Trust to support its operations."
