American Indian Nations from
Termination to Restoration, 1953-2006
Roberta Ulrich
When the US. government ended its relationship with downs of Nat rv
American tribes end hands between ts and 1966. ft was engaging in a mayave
social experiment. Congress enacted the program, known as termination, in the
name of treeing"' the Indians from government restrictions and improving their
quality of life. However, removing the federal status of more than nine down
tribes across the country plunged many of their nearly 13.000 members into
deeper levels of poverty and eroded the tribal peopled sense of Native identity,
Beginning in 197$ and extending over a twenty-ycar period, the terminated tribes,
one by one. persuaded Congress to restore their ties to the federal government
Nonetheless, so much damage had been done that even today the restored tribes
struggle to overcome the problems created by those terminations a half century
Roberta Ulrich provides a concise overview of all the terminations and
restorations of Native American tribes from is) tn sooe and t iptorvs the
enduring policy Implications for Native peoples. This is the first book to
consider all the terminations and restorations tn the twentieth century as part
of continuing policy while detailing some of the individual tribal dltwrences.
Drawing from Congressional records, interviews with tribal members, and other
primary sources, Ulrich delves into the causes and effects of termination and
restoration from both sides,
