Item description for Dances with Dependency: Out of Poverty through Self-Reliance by Calvin Helin...
Solutions are offered to the poverty inherent in indigenous cultures, developing nations, and inner city populations, which have become disempowered by long-term overreliance on mainstream political, social, and economic programs developed for their benefit.These welfare systems easily divest recipients of the resources and mind-sets necessary to become self-sufficient. Solutions range from instituting policy reform and enhancing cultural development to reframing dependency mind-sets. The outcome is an enhanced ability to partner with mainstream initiatives and help create wealth and opportunity.

Great ideas & interesting read Apr 11, 2008
This book is exactly what I had hoped it would be. It provides solid historical facts, straightforward information about the present, and feasible ideas to apply towards the future. It is very insightful about Native American/Canadian Aboriginal circumstances, but the concepts could be applied to many disenfranchised groups around the world.
