  Native state - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In biochemistry, the native state of a protein is its operative or functional form.
However, "native state" is used almost exclusively in the singular, typically to distinguish properly folded proteins from denatured or unfolded ones.
The native state of a protein can be distinguished from a molten globule, by among other things, distances measured by NMR.

Many Native Americans would describe their religious practices as a form of spirituality, rather than religion, although in practice the terms may sometimes be used interchangeably.

State and federal biologists recently conducted a range-wide review of the status of Colorado River cutthroats, and results are expected to be released in July.
Cutthroat trout have inhabited the state for thousands of years, and wildlife aquatic biologists and hatchery technicians are committed to preserving the region’s natural legacy, said Tom Nesler, native fish species coordinator for the DOW’s species conservation section.
Nesler and others said native cutthroat populations are making a slow and steady recovery because of the creation of new wild populations, the creation of captive populations in state hatcheries for stocking purposes, and interagency collaboration on goals and strategies among federal and state wildlife biologists in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and New Mexico.

Native plants are plant species that were growing in Minnesota's biomes when European immigrants first arrived in this state.

 A Brief History of South Carolina
The first decisive victory of the war was the repulse of a British fleet by patriot defenders in a palmetto log fort on Sullivans Island on June 28, 1776.
South Carolina became the eighth state to ratify the United States Constitution in 1788, and in 1790 moved its seat of government from Charleston to the new city of Columbia in the state's midlands.
The state thereafter was in the lead in resisting the threat to southern institutions from abolitionists and a stronger federal government and was the first to secede from the Union when it ratified the Ordinance of Secession on December 20, 1860.

 Native Fish Society
Native wild salmonids have always been ignored and it was not until we participated in getting salmon and steelhead protected under the ESA, that state and federal fish agencies began to shift programs in the favor of native fish.
This policy threatens the purpose of the ESA to recover native wild plants and animals in their natural habitats, because it would allow hatchery fish to be a replacement for wild salmonids.
The states of Washington and Oregon have hatchery programs that have a negative effect on native fish populations, and each state has many salmon and steelhead populations that are not listed.

 Surfline | Native State   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
I mean, of course we play in the surf to return to our native state, but it sounds corny when spelled out, especially to footage that has mostly been seen before: highlights from last season on the North Shore, etc. The first 15 minutes feel almost like a PBS documentary.
Native State's biggest downfall is that it tries to do too much -- the narration is a valiant attempt and would've been epic had it had a touch more focus.
But as a video to show folks who may not surf, or if you're feeling jaded or cynical with 12-year-olds on Indo boat trips, it's a good way to couch yourself for a half-hour or so on Sunday night and rekindle the flame.

Native American tribes are exempt under Federal law from charging state excise taxes on sales of tobacco and motor fuels to members of their own tribes.
Simply stated, the legislation responds to the Supreme Court's invitation for congressional action by providing states with a mechanism to enforce the law without infringing on tribal sovereign immunity or placing restrictions on trust land acquisitions or status.
D. This legislation will respect existing state/tribal compacts, or agreements, and existing state statutes by limiting the authority granted to the federal government to respond to petitions filed by states that have compacted with their Native American tribes or have specific statutes addressing this issue.

 ICT [2003/08/25]  Wilkins: Native state lawmakers, minimizing the tribal disadvantage
Ask a cross-section of Native or informed non-Native folk who comes to mind when you mention American Indian politicians, and the most likely name you'll hear, if you hear any name at all, is Ben Nighthorse Campbell (Northern Cheyenne), the Republican Senator from Colorado.
I believe these 40 Native state lawmakers may well constitute one of the last ramparts who have strategically embedded themselves in state government and are therefore in a critical position to protect what is left of Aboriginal sovereignty, tribal jurisdictional authority, and Native resources.
In response to a question about how their non-Native state colleagues view the doctrine of tribal sovereignty we received dismaying responses like "they don't understand or have much respect for tribal sovereignty" they are "afraid of tribal sovereignty;" and they express a "strong distrust of Indian motives, ideas, and attitudes."

They learned about the importance of integrating Native American literature and culture into the curriculum when working with Native students, and they learned about some of the best teaching strategies to use when working with Native students.
Then they developed curriculum units, based on what they were learning, that incorporated Nebraska state standards and Native American literature and culture that they could take back and use in their classrooms.
Our hope is to develop strong regional groups who are meeting regularly to discuss the needs of their Native students, network with each other to create partnerships for activities and projects involving Native students, and ultimately to improve student achievement among Native students.
