Abstract

This article explores Cherokee tribal property laws from the 1800s and suggests that tribes re-examine tribal property laws that were in effect prior to the forced federal allotment process. In some instance, the article suggests, tribal property laws could be renewed as a tool reduce the modern problem of fractionated interest in property.
