"This book contains a wealth of information on the Zuni and provides a wonderful example of how an interdisciplinary team of academics can put their knowledge to use on real world problems confronting real people. This is a primer of how to do Indian rights litigation the ‘right way,’ with the careful preparation of testimony and evidence, choosing the right expert witnesses, and putting the information to effective use at trial."—Robert A. Williams, Jr., author of The American Indian in Western Legal Thought "A significant contribution to the fields of Indian history, jurisprudence, and anthropology. It may well become the prime example of how to proceed in court actions involving Native Americans, aboriginal use, and ownership."—Robert W. Delaney, author of Ute Mountain Utes and Southern Ute People
From the Back Cover
Three decades ago - years after most tribes had filed land claims - the Zuni initiated legal battles related to aboriginal claims, rights, and use that few experts thought they could win. Yet by 1991 they had achieved three major victories. Providing a new overview of these cases and Zuni history, Richard Hart has gathered together essays written by many of those who testified for the Zuni - historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and scientists - as well as commentary from the tribe's lawyers. The authors simplify the complex nature of the testimony, making it accessible to a wide audience.
