abstract
"For the past several centuries, Native American tribes have struggled to maintain their sovereignty against ever-encroaching European and American powers. Treaties with these relative newcomers have been forged and broken as tribal lands have decreased dramatically over time. In this book, Todd Morman, an attorney working on the Indian Law Project for the Nevada Legal Service, recounts this history of complex relationships, focusing on the protection of sacred religious and cultural sites located on federally-owned lands throughout the United States. Morman describes some of the histories and cultures surrounding these diverse groups as well as American laws that have been passed to protect Native Americans’ rights."--
