    Where is Martinez v. Santa Clara Pueblo? Is the ruling not a Tribe and Tribe alone determines its own membership? The Tribal Attorney agreeing to mediation is not a waiver of soverign immunity, the Tribe waived sovereign immunity by drafting BIA review in the Articles of Association? Then every IRA Constitution that requires Secretarily approval of codes & resolutions is a waiver? This does not make sense, what are the federal rights taken from the defendants? Is this case only relevant to this Tribe, what about the Shakopee cases where people are denied enrollment?
