Sinopsis:

This invaluable reference reveals the long, often contentious history of Native American treaties, providing a rich overview of a topic of continuing importance.


· Over 300 A–Z entries covering important treaties such as the Treaty of 1778, U.S. and Indian leaders such as Chief Justice John Marshall and Red Cloud of the Sioux, and legal decisions such as Worcester v. Georgia

· 16 in-depth thematic essays providing both government and Indian perspectives on major issues, plus six essays looking at U.S.–Indian relations region by region

· A complete chronology of the major events that shaped the history of Native American treaty-making

· Over 100 contributors who are distinguished scholars in their field, such as Carole Greenberg and R. David Edmunds

· Photographs of significant individuals, treaty sites, and artifacts

Book Description:

How are certain Indian tribes able to operate casinos in states that outlaw gambling? Hunt whales where international laws prohibit it? Profit from oil leases on federal land? Govern themselves as nations? All of these privileges are guaranteed by treaties, and, while the broken treaty remains a valid symbol for the treatment of Native Americans, many of the 370+ pacts with the government were and are still honored.
