Imagination, Translation, and Constitutional Convergence
This text emphasizes the need for constitutional reform in order to address issues regarding Native American Indian tribe sovereignty. It identifies the Supreme Court and Congress as the main culprits in deconstitutionalizing Indian law. It acknowledges the two branches' own confusion regarding the topic by reviewing cases pertaining to Indian law and concerns. It also touches on the idea of treaty federalism by reestablishing a meaningful relationship between the federal government and tribes. The text supports this by citing the works of Russel Lawrence Barsh and James Youngblood Henderson, which contributed to the development of treaty federalism, and the creation of an amendment needing to respect tribal sovereignty.
