Abstract:     
Economic development is at the cornerstone of indigenous peoples' claims to self-determination. In the past twenty-five years, Native American nations within the United States have experienced significant growth in terms of their development efforts. And while the long-term effects are yet to be tested, short-term studies indicate socio-economic gains for Indian nations as well as local, state, and federal economies. At the same time, many tribes continue to confront serious issues of poverty and its social consequences. Thus an overarching question is why the variation in the levels and rates of economic growth. This article explores the many dimensions affecting tribal economies - from politics to socio-economic and cultural norms, as well as the various legal dimensions that influence tribal development efforts. Similarly, it offers insight on key aspects of Indian economic development, while demonstrating linkages between a policy supporting self-determination for Native peoples and improved economic conditions.
