Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As a tribal leader, I have found Stephen Pevar's book to be both an excellent and useful resource."

-Ron Allen,Past President of the National Congress of American Indians

"This is exactly the kind of information we need to get out to Indian country. The book can help to advance the rights of Native Americans, because it explains the complex legal issues in a comprehensible, straightforward manner."

-John E. Echohawk,Executive Director, Native American Rights Fund

"The format of the book…anticipates questions that everyone has and gives a concise answer to them. People should find the book very helpful in understanding the complexity of Indian law."

-Vine Deloria Jr.,author of Custer Died for Your Sins and We Talk, You Listen

"Every Indian should have this book."

-Vicky Santana,attorney and member of the Blackfeet Tribe of Montana

"Pevar's book provides an excellent overview to the contradictory history of shifting federal Indian policy from the period of complete tribal independence…to the current policy of tribal self-governance. This very important knowledge resource should be required reading. It will be a gift to the benefit of all our generations."
