Henry Roe Cloud series on American Indians and modernity. University Press Scholarship Online.
This text, the first of its kind, comprehensively explores Native American claims against the United States government over the past two centuries. Despite the federal government's multiple attempts to redress indigenous claims, a close examination reveals that even when compensatory programmes were instituted, native peoples never attained a genuine sense of justice. Wilkins addresses the important question of what one nation owes another when the balance of rights, resources, and responsibilities have been negotiated through treaties.
