Abstract

American Indian Treaties and laws are only followed when they benefit

the government, meaning they don't apply any other time. Only certain

sections are deemed valuable, and the parts that could incriminate the

government are omitted. This paper discusses the content of American

Indian Laws and treaties and the crippling effects they have had on

Indian country. Furthermore, this paper goes in depth on the cultural

advances made even with such restraints. Much work has been done

on the issues of cultural injustice, but there are very little works done on

the triumph in Indigenous culture and just what those triumphs are. This

paper will discuss and examine social justice issues within the

indigenous community in the past as well as recent developments that are

currently going on that are determinants of the future.

Stand Up, Fight Back: Native American Struggles and Rising Up

American Indian Treaties and laws are only followed when they benefit

the government, meaning they don't apply any other time. Only certain

government are omitted. This paper discusses the content of American

Indian Laws and treaties and the crippling effects they have had on

Indian country. Furthermore, this paper goes in depth on the cultural

advances made even with such restraints. Much work has been done

on the issues of cultural injustice, but there are very little works done on

the triumph in Indigenous culture and just what those triumphs are. This

paper will discuss and examine social justice issues within the

indigenous community in the past as well as recent developments that are
