Abstract:     
This essay examines the legal dimensions of indigenous peoples' claims to cultural property. Law and anthropology often address issues of cultural property in different ways. Anthropologists seek to understand cultural property within the context of the indigenous cultures themselves, while lawyers attempt to translate concepts of indigenous property into the language of Euroamerican law. Indigenous peoples' claims to cultural property provide a compelling example of the need for new legal relationships to be articulated between Indian nations and Euroamerican society.
