I've never met another Indian yet who was pining away for a bank, motel or movie theatre.
While I am willing to bet many of them would really appreciate a movie to go to within 50 miles of where they live,I'd be willing to bet even more of them would like to have places to work and earn a living for their families. About the only way to bring commerce to the reservations is to bring tourism,and tourists won't come unless there are places to provide for their needs.
About the worst thing you can do to people is put them on welfare and get them totally dependent on the government. Welfare should be ended immediately.
