A movement largely driven by Native Christian groups among the Apsáalooke (Crow) and Navajo Tribes has recently persuaded both tribal governments to establish political and economic alliances with Israel. In 2011, Navajo President Ben Shelly signed a "Declaration in Support of Israel" at a conference hosted by Navajo Pentecos-tals; in April, 2013, Crow Pentecostal tribal leaders succeeded in passing a resolution "Officially Supporting the State of Israel on a Nation-to-Nation Basis." Even as U.S. indigenous scholars publicly condemn growing tribal support for Israel as being antithetical to indigenous interests, Native Christian support for Israel continues to flourish in the theological landscapes of Pentecostalism, Mormonism, Messianic Judaism, and a host of Christian Zionist ministries active among U.S. Native communities today.
