The relationship between Native nations and their tribal governments, as well as national, state and local governments have been long been a source of historic tension for Indigenous peoples. Using a range of real-world case studies, this course explores how Indigenous nations can be treated as sovereigns by other nations. And how, as sovereigns, Indigenous nations can work with other governments to solve common problems in their nation-rebuilding efforts. Course participants will be provided with an overview of tribal-state and tribal-federal relations.
- What factors might Native Nations use when contemplating litigation or negotiation strategies?
- Does intergovernmental cooperation impair sovereignty?
- What internal, tribal governance dynamics might affect the negotiation processes?
- What constitutes a successful intergovernmental relationship?
