Indigenous People: An American Perspective On The Case For Entrenchment Of Maori Rights In New Zealand Law, Jeanette Jameson Jul 1993

Indigenous People: An American Perspective On The Case For Entrenchment Of Maori Rights In New Zealand Law, Jeanette Jameson

Washington International Law Journal

The 1840 Treaty of Waitangi, signed by representatives of the British Crown and Maori Tribes, created a partnership that allowed colonization of New Zealand while protecting the Maori culture. The Treaty was declared a "nullity" in an 1877 court decision, and Maori rights under the Treaty have yet to be fully realized. Since the beginning of the 1970s, the New Zealand government has increasingly recognized the Maori culture. This Comment explores the history of the relationship between the Maori people and the New Zealand government. It analyzes current government policy on Maori issues. Fimally, it advocates for legislative entrenchment of …

From Quantification To Qualification: A State Court's Distortion Of The Law In In Re General Adjudication Of All Rights To Use Water In The Big Horn River System, Berrie Martinis Apr 1993

From Quantification To Qualification: A State Court's Distortion Of The Law In In Re General Adjudication Of All Rights To Use Water In The Big Horn River System, Berrie Martinis

Washington Law Review

The Wyoming Supreme Court applied state law to Indian reserved water rights in its recent decision in In re General Adjudication of All Rights to Use Water in the Big Horn River System (Big Horn III). Prior to Big Horn III, courts never applied state law to such rights. This Note argues that the Wyoming decision contradicts federal reserved water rights law and federal Indian law, and concludes that Congress should enact legislation overturning the Big Horn III decision.


Recognizing Sovereignty In Alaska Native Villages After The Passage Of Ancsa, Patricia Thompson Apr 1993

Recognizing Sovereignty In Alaska Native Villages After The Passage Of Ancsa, Patricia Thompson

Washington Law Review

The federal law principles of tribal sovereignty and Indian country define the parameters of tribal self-governance. In Alaska, however, federal and state courts remain divided on the issues of Alaska Native Village sovereignty and Indian country. This Comment examines the state and federal court treatment of these issues, and concludes that Native Villages are sovereign tribes and the lands set aside under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act should define the boundaries of Indian country in Alaska.

The Challenge Of Indigenous Self-Determination, Russel Lawrence Barsh Jan 1993

The Challenge Of Indigenous Self-Determination, Russel Lawrence Barsh

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

The Earth Summit at Rio was the first global negotiation in which indigenous peoples participated directly. They did so with the aim of advocating land rights and greater self-determination in the fields of natural-resource management and development. They justified these claims by arguing that indigenous peoples are superior stewards of the land and that strengthening indigenous peoples' traditional economies would contribute to solving global ecological and economic problems. This approach succeeded all too well. Jaded diplomats and environmental ministers seized on the hopeful possibility that indigenous economics actually might work better than discredited socialism and overextended capitalism, and they invited …

Breaking Into The Intergovernmental Matrix: The Lumbee Tribe's Efforts To Secure Federal Acknowledgment, David E. Wilkins

Jepson School of Leadership Studies articles, book chapters and other publications

This article discusses the concept of political recognition (both federal and state) of Indian tribes; explains the difference between administrative and legislative recognition; examines who is or should be empowered to extend federal recognition, the Congress or the executive branch; discusses the major factors that have compelled the Lumbees to seek federal recognition when they were already acknowledged by the state; and examines the major factors that have precluded them from securing complete federal recognition.
