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.

    my maternal grandmother was just one of the many “lost” Cherokee Indians who moved from Kentucky to Arkansas , but was treated unfair. I am trying to find out just WHY she was given such a hard time enrolling in her tribe. She has many court cases filed within the National Archives. Help? Her name was Mary e Hammons- Marlow. However no one in her family could read or write. I have found many records with misspelled names.
