Charters, Constitutions and By-Laws of the Indian Tribes of North America, Part VII: The Indian Tribes of California.
Fay, George E., Comp.
The publication, Part VII of a series, includes the charters, constitutions, articles of association or community organization, and by-laws of California Indians on 16 reservations and rancherias. Legal documents from the following groups are provided: Hoopa, Me-Wuk, and Paiute Indians; the Agua Caliente Band of Mission Indians; the Mission Creek Band; Big Valley, Kashia, and Upper Lake Pomo Indians; the Quechan and Washoe tribes; and Indians from the Santa Rosa Community and the Susanville and Trinidad rancherias. Anthropologists have divided California Indians into 21 linguistic groups, most of which are too small to classify as tribes. The location of Indians on reservations is by bands or groups rather than by linguistic or tribal designation. Also included in the document are the Rancheria and Reservation Act of Public Law 85-671 and a brief description of the socioeconomic background of California Indians. (EJ)
