Presidential Policy in Indian Country

The relationship between Indian nations and the federal government is a complicated one. We are not foreign nations, we are not states. We are, in the infamous words of Justice Marshall, "domestic dependent nations".

Now law scholars have discussed in depth exactly what that means, and lord knows it means less and less in the eyes of the current Supreme Court. But it does mean we have a unique relationship with the US feds, including the Executive Branch. So what the future president outlines are his or her policy in Indian Country is of great importance to us.

So here's the three remaining contenders' issue statements on Indian Country.

Obama 110%. His recent speech on race was the clincher, although I was already on board. To quote Richardson, he is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate. An amazing man and I have no doubt he will be an amazing president.
