It’s been nearly 30 years since Congress declared November as National American Indian Heritage Month accompanied by Presidential Proclamation 6230 . The U.S. Government provides some great guides to federal sources on Native American law as well as non-federal government sources .
But The New York Law Institute has always had Native American documents as part of its collection! Check out our Early American Statutes & Laws that include Constitution, treaties and laws of the Chickasaw Nation, 1890 and the Laws of the Cherokee Nation, 1826.
…..Along with e-book titles such as Lemont’s American Indian Constitutional Reform and the Rebuilding of Native Nations and Winship’s Godly Republicanism: Puritans, Pilgrims, and a City on a Hill. Mayflower Pilgrims early documents can be found in our print collection as well.
