This book explores the evolution of Indian Affairs policies and administrative practices regarding the management of trust lands from treaty days to contemporary partnerships. A dozen scholars -- from diverse fields such as archaeology, economics, forestry, environmental studies, history, geography, and political science -- have come together to critically review past policies and practices and introduce new ideas and approaches for the future. Also includes case studies concerning the management of wildlife, forest preservation, tribal hunting laws, and other concerns endemic to the preservation and utilisation of the environment on Native American land. An excellent source for scholars in the fields of Native American and environmental studies, the book is sure to spark debate and to be an important reference book for years to come.
