When the United States Constitution was adopted containing language in Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 that acknowledged the sovereign status of Indian tribes, it set the stage for the development of the field of federal Indian law. Since that time, numerous treaties, statutes, regulations, executive orders, and US Supreme Court decisions have dealt with federal recognition of tribes, tribal lands, Indian status, jurisdiction, religious rights, and tribal government authority. The JRCLS Indian Law Section is dedicated to understanding, scholarship, and education about legal issues pertinent to this exciting and evolving field of law.
