What Was the Role of The Supreme Court In The Protection Of Native American Lands?

A

The Supreme Court has ruled that the large area of eastern Oklahoma belong to native Americans. The implications of this ruling will have effects on the sovereignty of native Americans.

This ruling came about as a result of the case of the Seminole man who was convicted in an Oklahoma state court.

The Court ruled that crimes committed on Indian Land by Indians ought to be prosecuted by the federal government and not the state.
