Now in its third edition, Alaska Natives and American Laws is still the only work of its kind, canvassing federal law and its history as applied to the indigenous peoples of Alaska. Covering 1867 through 2011, the authors offer lucid explanations of the often-tangled history of policy and law as applied to Alaska’s first peoples. Divided conceptually into four broad themes of indigenous rights to land, subsistence, services, and sovereignty, the book offers a thorough and balanced analysis of the evolution of these rights in the forty-ninth state. This third edition brings the volume fully up to date, with consideration of the broader evolution of indigenous rights in international law and recent developments on the ground in Alaska.

""This book is a lively and accessible account of the remarkably complex legal and political situation of American Indian tribes and tribal citizens (who are also U.S. citizens) David E. Wilkins and Heidi Kiiwetinepinesiik Stark have provided the g̀o-to' source for a clear yet detailed and sophisticated introduction to tribal soverignty and federal Indian policy. It is a valuable resource both for readers unfamiliar with the subject matter and for readers in Native American studies and related fields, who will appreciate the insightful and original scholarly analysis of the authors."--Thomas Biolsi, University of California at Berkeley" ""American Indian Politics and the American Political System is simply an indispensable compendium of fact and reason on the historical and modern landscape of American Indian law and policy. No teacher or student of American Indian studies, no policymaker in American Indian policy, and no observer of American Indian history and law should do without this book. There is nothing in the field remotely as comprehensive, usable, and balanced as Wilkins and Stark's work."--Matthew L. M. Fletcher, director of the Indigenous Law and Policy Center at Michigan State University College of Law" ""Wilkins has written the first general study of contemporary Indians in the United States from the disciplinary standpoint of political science. His inclusion of legal matters results in sophisticated treatment of many contemporary issues involving Native American governments and the government of the United States and gives readers a good background for understanding other questions. The writing is clear-not a minor matter in such a complex subject--and short case histories are presented, plus links (including websites) to many sources of information."--Choice

Indigenous Peoples and Governance Structures

Indigenous Australians share with the Indigenous peoples of the world a commitment to govern their lands. Increasingly, international law standards are providing for the right of indigenous participation in decisions affecting natural resources and land use. These rights are derived from common law. In practical terms, the degree of self governance is provided by national statutes and treaties or through the declarations and protocols of international bodies like the United Nations. Indigenous peoples, legal and other professionals have actively engaged a number of international and national legal mechanisms to achieve degrees of self-governance in Canada, the United States, Greenland, Demark, Norway, New Zealand and Australia. This book presents these dynamic precedents in the ongoing effort for indigenous self governance. The book, together with the companion volume on Prescribed Bodies Corporate, examines the policies and practices of various regimes of governance on Aboriginal land including the emerging regimes for the management of native title areas, and the incorporation of Indigenous interests into land administration. The authors have augmented this assessment with a comprehensive comparative analysis of regimes in operation in other jurisdictions. This study highlights the need for such, structures of engagement to be designed in ways that reflect Indigenous peoples' interests, perspectives and aspirations. To do so, Indigenous peoples must be involved in their design and implementation.
