Federal Indian law recognizes the inherent sovereignty of Native nations and defines the government-to-government relationship between tribes and the federal government, as well as the relative bounds of federal, tribal and state jurisdiction over Indian country as those have changed since colonial times. It also concerns tribal property rights based on original title, treaties, and statutes, including rights in land, water, and hunting, fishing, and gathering rights, cultural property, and tribal businesses. Other topics include child welfare, environmental regulation, taxation, and the unique laws applicable to Native Alaskans and Native Hawaiians.
