Indian Justice Planning Project 1971
Publisher: Indian Justice Planning Project, 1971 Santa Fe, NM.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. Trade paperback 4to - over 9 - 12" tall "..While not intended nor offered as a learned treatise to the serious scholar of Indian affairs and history, Part I of this study should serve to acquaint the reader with a brief history of the peoples with whom this study deals, with traditional justice forms from which the present state of Indian justice has evolved and with the peculi9ar legal status of the American Indian and his government. It will examine the major legislative enactments with which the Indian must deal on a continuing, daily basis and it will describe the unique resourc3es and limitations imposed upon the Indian in his constant struggle toward self-government. Part II of this study contains 38 individual tribal plans in four state sections. The comprehensive state plans reflect a composite of those tribal plans within that state. The Navajo plan is set out in a separate section. While the seat of Navajo tribal government is located in Window Rock, Arizona, the reservation lies partially with the states of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. The directors of those state planning agencies have previously agreed in principle to joint funding of those Navajo applications which would affect the entire reservation significantly. The theme of this study and the course chosen by the Indian Justice Planning Project is reflected on the cover - The People Shall Judge." 557 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition; small green stain on rear cover; some shelfwear. Paper wrappers.

Deloria, Jr., Vine and DeMallie, Raymond (Intro)  
Proceedings of the Great Peace Commission of 1867-1868
Publisher: The Institute for the Development of Indian Law, 1975 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 4to - over 9 - 12" tall "In 1969 a group of Indian activists occupied Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay claiming they had rights under the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie to lay claim to surplus government lands. The theory proved to be popular among Indians and soon numerous groups were claiming that the 1868 treaty gave them the right to occupy lands that were no longer being used by the government. In 1973, 300 Indians occupied the village of Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservations in South Dakota and demanded that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hold hearings on the 1868 treaty. The occupation lasted for 71 days and resulted in an agreement between the occupants and the government. Criminal indictments were handed down against numerous people who had been at Wounded Knee and in many of the trials following the occupation the treaty was used as a defense against the claim by the government that it had sufficient jurisdiction to try the defendants. In order to understand the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie, one must know something of the series of events which surrounded the numerous treaty negotiations on the Northern and Southern Plains for more than a decade prior to the signing of that treaty.." 176 pages.
