Abstract

These two essays were part of a colloquy on tribal sovereignty published in the Montana Law Review. The argument is simple: Although many critics see the idea of tribal sovereignty as anomalous in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, the doctrine continues to play an important role in the law. Even in the most tribal-unfriendly decisions issued by the Supreme Court over the years, important roles have been preserved for the American Indian nations as sovereigns.

Keywords: Tribal Sovereignty, United States Supreme Court, American Indian Law
