The Right to Remain Indian. The Failure of the Federal Government to Protect Indian Land and Water Rights.
All Indian Pueblo Council, Albuquerque, NM.
The document is submitted pursuant to a contract with the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, in preparation for hearings held in New Mexico during November 1972. It covers the protection and preservation of the land and water rights of the American Indian tribes in the Southwest, which is as vital as any problem which now confronts the Pueblo tribes. The discussion: (1) considers the relationship which exists between the Indian tribes and the United States Government, using the Pueblo Tribes as an illustration; (2) traces the development of the legal basis for protection of the tribal rights to use water--the Winter's Doctrine; (3) chronicles legislative and administrative events affecting the Pueblo and neighboring tribes in both New Mexico and Arizona; and (4) interprets those events.
