HomePeoplePeople on Native Lands

I think by this point we can all agree that we didn’t as a society do any favors to the Native American’s when it came time to give them land.  I recently receive a wine gift basket from Nex Mexico, in an area I know which is perilously close to a large reservation.

It made me think, what if the wine industry in this part of the country takes off.  It’s an interesting question because sparkling wine (think Champagne, but we can’t call it that because Champagne is a region in France) is huge in Nex Mexico.  In fact sparkling wines from New Mexico are actually the best being produced in America today.

What happens if wineries want land to continue increasing production?  Will the government help move even more people, to an even worse location once again?
