Part Two of a Four part series.
One of the most critical examinations in American Indian law comes from the legislative history. As Congress has the retained Plenary Power over tribes, congressional sources and intent are imperative to that analysis. Therefore, one of the most critical tabs that HeinOnline lists first is the Legislative Histories tab.
When going through this tab, a researcher can find not only the actual acts, but also the reports and hearing documents on the material from the various House and Senate Committees.
This tab is very helpful to understand the background and purpose of American Indian Law legislation.
Access to HeinOnline: American Indian Law Collection database is available through the Texas Tech Law Library website under the Electronic Databases tab.
