Editorial Reviews

“The business of tribal sovereignty starts with tribal government. Labor and Employment Law in Indian Country is a standard-bearer for the development of modern tribal government. It should be on the bookshelf of every tribal lawyer.”

Professor of American Culture, University of Michigan

“Labor and Employment Law in Indian Country takes a complex and critically important subject for all Tribal Nations and lays it out in an easy-to-understand manner that balances both the big-picture outlook and the, oftentimes, gritty details that come with any law topic. This book is an essential read for all tribal leaders, tribal attorneys, tribal code drafters, as well as human resources and upper management personnel. . . .”
