About this title

Synopsis:

"Faith in Paper" is about the reinstitution of Indian treaty rights in the Upper Great Lakes region during the last quarter of the 20th century. The book focuses on the treaties and legal cases that togetherhave awakened a new day in Native American sovereignty and established the place of Indian tribes on the modern political landscape. In addition to discussing the historic development of Indian treaties and their social and legal context, Charles E. Cleland outlines specific treaties litigated in modern courts as well as the impact of treaty litigation on the modern Indian and non-Indian communities of the region. "Faith in Paper" is both an important contribution to the scholarship of Indian legal matters and a rich resource for Indiansthemselves as they strive to retain or regain rights that have eroded over the years. Charles E. Cleland is Michigan State University Emeritus Professor of Anthropology and Curator of Anthropology and Ethnology. He has been an expert witness in numerous Native American land claims and fishing rights cases and written a number of other books on the subject, including "Rites of Conquest: The History and Culture of Michigan's Native Americans"; "The Place of the Pike (Gnoozhekaaning): A History of the Bay Mills Indian Community"; and (as a contributor) "Fish in the ""Lakes, Wild Rice, and Game in Abundance: Testimony on Behalf of Mille Lacs Ojibwe Hunting and Fishing Rights."
