Abstract
 
Description
You probably know that millions of people lived in North America before Columbus wandered into the Caribbean. They are now citizens of the United States, but they are also citizens of their own nations, all duly recognized by the federal and local governments.

These nations have their own land, their own governments, and, like other nations, a strong sense of independence. "Keeping Promises" describes these unique cultures and how they won their interdependence.

Learn how land, ceremony, tradition, history, law, and politics intersect to define tribal sovereignty. "Keeping Promises" describes the complex but important relationship between Indian tribes and the US government made to American Indians and how they have kept those promises. It also describes the relationship between the nations and states, local governments, and other tribal governments.

"Keeping Promises" concisely and simply answers questions about law enforcement, Indian gaming, reservation boundaries, and other subjects. Most important, it helps us understand how Indians define themselves, their tribes, and their sovereignty.
