This. I live in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, and I can honestly say that I'm happier with the inclusion of the Shoshone that I would be with the inclusion of Canada. I can't speak for all Western Canadians/Americans, but as sean points out, some of us non-indigenous Westerners are really keen to have Western continental representation. I still hope I'll one day see Inuit or Cree civ representing tundra/snow inhabitors, and maybe even Haida as a maritime-cultural civ. Od Coast Salish civ at large. But I'd aldo have been stoked to get Pueblo (if their elders had agreed to the inclusion), and would gladly and loyally play as Utes, Zuni, or really any indigenous group from the West or North.
