Jurisdictional uncertainty affects tribal sovereignty and public safety. Management of natural resources remains one of the few realms of authority over which tribes have retained control. Ancient wild rice harvesting by the Chippewa provides a context in which to consider a tribes ability to set water standards, as does Pueblo ceremonial use of the Rio Grande River. Cooperative tribal, state, federal, and international responses to the Methamphetamine crisis can address both environmental and human health. This study examines the prospect for integrated protection of health and habitat based upon comity and cooperation. It examines the parameters of homeland security and the requisite degree of public oversight of private activities. This article concludes that tribal, state, and federal cooperation can achieve good governance.
