Call for references

Okay so I actually seem to have a number of people reading this so I'm going to ask for your help. Do you know of a legal court case about Cultural or Native Heritage rights of maybe have some sources that talk about anthropology and Native Rights? My next post I would like to do about reparation, treaty rights and archaeology and how all those connect as we have been learning about them in some of my classes so if you think you have something that would help me you can email me or post it on the comments.

This will probably be a multi-post research because it is a large topic so I will be putting up the history, changes made to the laws and what this can and does mean for Native people as well as possible further work that can be done.

If you are new to reading my blog, welcome and feel free to post on anything(that last part works for you all).

Thank you

Conclusion for this project

This is the last post for the anthropology project that I started this for but honestly I do not want to end this blog. The Native Sovereignty Movement is a large and current social movement that is constantly changing and evolving. I would like to actually broaden the topic of this blog to include the entire Native Rights Movement and have more time to delve into the history of this movement.

I would particularly like to look into archaeological agreements as well because I find agreements like NAGPRA(Native American Grave Protection and Reparation Act) to be interesting and I do think that they have an effect on the Native Sovereignty Movement.

I believe that any opinion you have on this subject has validity so long as it is not based in ignorance or misunderstanding and I would like to expand this blog to act as a database for information about the Native Rights Movement.

There will probably be about a week of no new posts but I hope that after that point I can return to building upon our knowledge of how Natives and non-Natives have lived together and possible ideas for how to better our relations.

Until then, thank you for your time and feel free to comment on any of my posts. Hopefully, you feel that I have helped increase your understanding of the Native Sovereignty Movement.
