Description

An investigation by the Detroit News reveals "widespread civil rights abuses" on American Indian reservations in Michigan and across the country. "American Indians, our investigation revealed, often live in societies with no independent justice system, limited access to public records, restrictive election laws and scant protections against legislative misconduct. In addition, most Indians have little control over their tribe's finances and their tribal membership is subject to the whim of their leaders."
