Indeed, that was obvious from the research I did, however the same is
true of Maori and amongst them, there are different dialects and
traditions.  I have been trying to get a Maori Native Language Project
going for OOo for a number of years, but the differences have prevented
getting a single translation sorted.  However when something affects
Maori as a whole there is very strong unity in protecting those things
they see as being representative of their cultural identity and they
have used IP law effectively in this.

Then that is to our advantage, though I have noted some combined
activism on some fronts, and some groups that represent themselves as
"Apache Tribal Nation", let's hope my wariness is unjustified.
