This lesson will ask students to review sections of A Seat at the Drum and Spiral of Fire where the many issues of tribal sovereignty are evident. Students will be asked to research the sovereignty issues facing a tribe that resides within their state border. Then, they will develop their own sovereign nation. Students will concentrate on how the concept of sovereignty is special for Indian tribes and is often central to casino issues.
