Native American Public Telecommunications



Indians & the U.S. Government (3/30/00)

Date of this Version

March 2000


European nations first recognized the need to use the international legal device, the treaty, in dealing with tribal nations shortly after 1500. All of the colonial powers, and later the United States, recognized the sovereignty of tribal governments by entering into over 800 treaties with tribes. How do treaties and agreements affect our lives today? And how do treaty rights and guarantees make Native people different from other population segments of the United States? Guests include Kirke Kickingbird, author of "Indians and the U.S. Constitution".
