AbstractThis study produces insights, ideas, and findings about exclusionary mechanisms associated with Federal Indian law, International Human Rights law, and selected Tribal practices. The study examines the consequences of these exclusionary devices on living tribal communities as well as suggesting the potential for healing the effects of exclusion found in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It looks at the history of Federal Indian law, International Human Rights law, and tribal practices to compare exclusionary practices with the collective orientation of traditional tribal ways of knowing and being. The author also describes a split between guilt and self-image in the national psyche that must be healed before dispossession and exclusion can balanced with practices more concerned with human welfare.
