Prior to the 1970s, most Native nations living east of the Mississippi were virtually ignored by federal officials, state governments, and most non-Indians. This chapter looks at how this changed in 1975 when an important federal appellate case—Joint Tribal Council of the Passamaquoddy Tribe et al. v. Morton et al.—was handed down. The claims of these indigenous peoples had not been served by the Indian Claims Commission because their land losses had occurred not because of federal action but as a result of actions by individual states, cities, or individuals. This case had a profound impact on events.

Keywords:   Native nations, federal officials, non-Indians, Joint Tribal Council, Passamaquoddy Tribe, Indian Claims Commission
