Abstract

In a symposium on the future of Indian law, this article suggests that the future would be brighter if the Congress eliminated Supreme Court jurisdiction over Indian cases. The article contends that during the two decades prior to the article's publication, the Court strayed badly from foundational principles of Indian jurisprudence, undermining both tribal sovereignty and Indian property rights. The article maintained that there was no constitutional impediment to eliminating Court jurisdiction over Indian law cases and a number of policy reasons for doing so.
