Since ancient times, many native peoples across America governed themselves with a tribal council or another system of government. Many developed constitutions to codify their laws as well. This important aspect of Native American history is carefully explained in this well-researched and accessible book, which focuses on the governments of several native peoples. Historical images, interesting fact boxes, and a colorful design make this significant subject even more appealing to young historians.
