Native Americans: A Compendium

This Compendium focuses primarily on American Indians with 12 sections covering topics such as educational issues, child welfare water rights the Indian Trust Fund, tribal government and tribal jurisdiction, taxation, criminal justice, and gaming. A single section is devoted to Alaska Eskimo.

Congress has extensive power to legislate on Indian affairs. This includes oversight of the trust relationship between tribes and the federal government, the regulation of Indian gaming, the extent of tribal criminal and civil jurisdiction, and the scope and administration of federal grant programs and benefits conferred on Indian tribes and other Native Americans. In addition to recurring appropriations and authorization issues involving the programs administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Indian Education, the Indian Health Service, and other federal agencies, Congress contends with an array of issues stemming from the unique legal relationship between the Indian nations and the federal government.
