Abstract:
Since colonist arrival to the continental United States, Native Americans have fallen victim to mistreatment. Their land was taken from them and they were forced into living situations far less advantageous than those of the people who arrived to this country long after. Specifically looking at the freedom of religion, which is a corner stone in Native American culture, I will be discussing the issue of how much freedom has been given/denied as it pertains to land, as well as how the handling of their rights shows inconsistencies within the Constitution.
