Tribal Sovereignty in Alaska: How It Happened, What It Means by Donald Craig Mitchell

Regular price $ 45.00

But today Alaska Natives in villages throughout Alaska are adamant that they are, and always have been, members of federally recognized tribes that possess inherent sovereign governmental authority. How that happened is the story Donald Craig Mitchell tells in Tribal Sovereignty in Alaska, the first comprehensive history of the Alaska Native tribal sovereignty movement.
