LEGISLATION LEGACY 2 Legislation Legacy The restriction of utilizing natural resources on reservations is an issue the Native Americans face. An article titled, “Unless Energy on Tribal Lands,” was released January of this year within the Indian Leader. In the article, it explains how the government restricts Native American tribes from accessing almost one trillion dollars’ worth of natural energy resources located on reservations today, including coal, gas, oil, and wind. The article states that at least 49 bureaucratic steps are deterring energy development. Native American reservations contain approximately 10% of the United States energy resources, yet the government is only utilizing about 5%. According to the government more than two million acres or reservation land has already been developed for gas, oil, and coal. Another 15 million acres could have the same potential as well as additional land for wind power.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
