This federal Indian law casebook has an unprecedented focus on Native Nation-building, including cutting-edge materials on tribal economies and tribal justice systems unavailable elsewhere. The Sixth edition retains classic material on the history of federal Indian law and policy, including the medieval origins of the Doctrine of Discovery, and the shifting eras of Indian law leading to the current Nation-building era. The book covers the federal tribal relationship; tribal sovereignty and jurisdiction; Indian religion and culture; water rights; treaty rights; rights of Alaska natives and native Hawaiians; and international legal perspectives.
