You Don't Look Indian Enough: the Political and Psychological Implications of Blood Quantum Laws

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Tribal and federal blood quantum laws regulate tribal membership and use western conceptions of “Indianness” as a political tactic. These laws are controversial in and out of Indian Country. Many argue that they complicate tribal political sovereignty and individual cultural self-determination, but others believe these laws ensure that non-Indians cannot exploit tribal benefits.
