Government Reference and International Publications of the Center For World Indigenous Studies :

Excerpt
Excerpt: The question of self-governance among American Indian nations encapsulated within what is now the United States of America is one of the more confused issues in modern politics. While there is a general understanding that the indigenous nations of North America once existed as fully self-governing entities, those concerned with the matter have proven spectacularly unable to arrive at even a common definition of what constitutes (or might constitute) contemporary Indian self-governance, whether it presently exists or, if it does not, how it might be achieved. The present paper is an effort to examine both the proper meanings (facts) of self-governance and misunderstandings (fantasies), apply these observations to the situation in which Indian nations presently find themselves vis a vis the U.S., and advance a prospectus for Indian self-governance over the coming decades. Insofar as the space allowed for pursuit of these themes is quite limited, only the briefest overview will be possible.
