Jewels in the Crown: American Indian Law

Report of the Committee... Milledgeville, 1832
The Pulling Collection includes an extensive set of material on American Indian law, with a wide array of treaties, tribal laws and constitutions. The collection documents very well the removal of tribes to Indian Territory, and reveals some of the culture of a wide variety of tribes, seen through laws and constitutions. Taken together the collection of American Indian law captures many of the key moments in US-Indian relations between the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and represents an excellent resource for research.
