Brings together interdisciplinary analyses
This collection brings together for the first time more than 70 scholarly essays by tribal leaders, attorneys, legal scholars, anthropologists, and historians who illuminate the ambiguities, confusion, and judicial dilemmas of America's Indian tribes and their members.
Special focus on the Indian Bill of Rights
The first four volumes survey the development of Indian legal relationships within their communities and with the U.S. government, focusing on the 20th century when many legal precedents were set. The primary theme of the essays is on government attempts to make Native Americans fit within a federal legal framework.
Examines key points in Native American law
The last two volumes highlight important themes in Native American law. The first considers cultural and religious freedoms that have resulted in major legal confrontations between Native American societies and the federal government. The other examines the various legal nuances of tribal sovereignty.
