Job training and new industry will help Native Americans everywhere. I hope this program is emulated and expanded to include training in "green industries" like solar and wind power. Those are still growth industries which Native Americans would have a chance to get a secure foothold in. Many of those presently working in those fields are passionate about their industries and would probably be enthusiastic partners in such training and development programs.

My Dad always said "If a man can learn to weld he can get a job anywhere!" One of the "Brothers" took it to heart and after laying lot's of weld out in the shop got his license & took it to work in the shipyards. I think it's a great art to teach the boys in. There is indeed an art to putting down a good weld. That's what Dad said.
