Contemporary Tribal Codes and Gender Issues.
Miller, Bruce G.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v18 n2 p43-74 1994
Examines the legal codes of eight Coast Salish tribes. Focuses on gender issues, including the legal statuses of males and females, inheritance, access to tribal jobs and job training, political enfranchisement, child welfare and parental responsibilities, parent rights, and public safety. The codes vary substantially in how they balance individual rights and those of extended family networks. (SV)
