In Order That Justice May Be Done: The Legal Struggle of the Turtle Mountain Band of Pembina Chippewa (1795-1904) -book
When the cultural identity of the Turtle Mountain Band of Pembina Chippewa was challenged by European Americans--who conceived of progress in terms of cultivated farmland--a tribal-federal conundrum occurred. Historian John M. Shaw untangles the culturally and legally contested concepts of land and its uses and ownership, providing a dynamic legal genesis of the Turtle Mountain Chippewa and their intentional action for change. Shaw presents a crucial analysis of federal policy and Native American resistance.
