Description:

The paper provides a summary of the conflict, the contentions of each party and the subsequent court decisions. The paper examines the U.S. Supreme Court's decision that the Oneida Nation had to pay the property tax on the land that they claimed had the status of Indian reservation land. The paper discusses how the guarantees set out in both U.S. federal and state laws in relation to reservation land would not apply in this case as the Indian Nation had sold the land willingly and then after 200 years repurchased the land in the free-market. The paper notes the interest of the researcher in this case.
