Research Canons: American Indian Law
Our next subject matter for the research canons project is American Indian Law. (See here for a discussion of the research canons project, including some newly added categories, dates, and links to previous installments.) Please comment on the books and articles that are essential to a new academic in the field.
Patrick O'Donnell has kindly contributed his basic bibliography. The document can be downloaded here

A great idea -- adding this subject to the "canons" project. The Felix Cohen handbook is a must, of course. And, R. Clinton's "Criminal Jurisdiction Over Indian Lands."

Francis Paul Prucha's American Indian Treaties: the History of a Political Anomaly gives a great history of the use of treaties and does a good job of connecting this history to contemporary legal issues involving Indians. (N.B.: I'm just a 2L, but I really found the book fascinating.)

I would probably add Wilkinson's Blood Struggle to O'Donnell's list... for though it is a new book it is a great way for a junior person (like myself) to figure out the role different people played in strengthening Indian tribes this century.
