Abstract

The Seminole Nation comprises persons of both Native American and African-American descent. The African-American constituency of the nation has battled in the courts to have its benefits under Federal law recognized. The Davis cases, based on a mother's claim for school benefits, exemplify this struggle both within the Seminole community, and between the Seminoles and the Federal Government.
