Indian tribes have sovereignty, which means they have the right to govern themselves. This inherent sovereignty protects tribes from state laws on certain levels.
A tribe that has a government-to-government relationship with the United States is considered a federally recognized tribe. Federally recognized tribes are eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Indian treaty rights date back to the 1700s when American Indians first made contact with settlers in what is now the United States. Relations between settlers and American Indians were generally conducted through treaties, which outlined each sovereignty’s rights and served as the foundation of all contact. Indian treaties are considered “the supreme law of the land.”
