jan 1, 1953 - Termination

Description:

The pendulum came back again. A bunch of tribes were taking their new governmental power and filing it to enforce land claims from old treaties. Congress was tired of all the talking so they set up a commission to pay the claims without giving any land back to the tribes and then put a law to terminate the federal recognition and protection of the selected tribes. Jurisdiction was turned over to the states. In 1953, all of the tribes in California, Florida, New York and Texas were slated for termination. The plan was to get the federal government out of the Indian business, but states have always been less protective of Native American independence. The program lasted until 1962 when the Ponca's of Nebraska were the last tribe to be taken down.
