Jeff Corntassel and Richard C. Witmern foreword by Lindsay G. Robertson

Forced Federalism : Contemporary Challenges to Indigenous Nationhood University of Oklahoma Press, c2008

KF8205.C67 2008


Over the past twenty years, Native American policy could be called "forced federalism," over such issues as taxation, gaming, and homeland security. During the forced federalism era (1988-present), public perceptions of indigenous peoples as "rich Indians" have been just as damaging to Native nations as anti-sovereignty legislation. This book examines how state governments have manipulated "rich Indian" images when setting policies targeting indigenous peoples and discusses how indigenous nations have responded politically to these contemporary threats to their nationhood.
