Abstract:     
This Article discusses the role of tribal environmental decision-making in the contemporary era of self-determination, and analyzes the ethical, scientific, and economic dimensions of environmental policy. To provide a framework for that discussion, Part I explores the nature of tribal governmental authority over the reservation environment and the legal boundaries of self-determination. Parts II, III, and IV probe the origins of contemporary environmental policy and its influence on tribal environmental decision-making. Part V examines several current examples of tribal implementation of environmental policy and the conflicts and resolutions engendered by these efforts. Finally, Part VI demonstrates the important links between environmental policy and economic development for Indian nations.
