What does Tribal Sovereignty mean to Indian Tribes?

0

When Indian Tribes first encountered Europeans, the Europeans dealt with the Tribes as sovereign governments with whom treaties were made. When Tribal lands were conveyed to the United States, the Tribes retained some inherent sovereignty over their lands. While such sovereignty is limited today, it is protected by Tribes against encroachments by other sovereign entities such as states and the Federal government.
