Laws Just for Indians

As of 1969, Congress had passed 5,000 laws for Indians. The effects of the laws had been to reduce the role of Indian tribal leaders and enhance the power of federal officials to regulate Indian people and their lives. This webinar will give a brief explanation of how the federal government’s policies have led to these laws for Indians. There will be a brief overview of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), the Native American Graves Protection and Reparation Act (NAGPRA) and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
