Pueblo Sovereignty

Malcolm Ebright & Rick Hendricks


Pueblo Sovereignty, Indian Land and Water in New Mexico and Texas By Malcolm Ebright and Rick Hendricks.

Over five centuries of foreign rule — by Spain, Mexico, and the United States — Native American pueblos have confronted attacks on their sovereignty and encroachments on their land and water rights. How five New Mexico and Texas pueblos did this, in some cases multiple times, forms the history of cultural resilience and tenacity chronicled in Pueblo Sovereignty by two of New Mexico’s most distinguished legal historians, Malcolm Ebright and Rick Hendricks. Extending their award-winning work on Four Square Leagues, Ebright and Hendricks focus here on four New Mexico Pueblo Indian communities; Pojoaque, Nambe, Tesuque, and Isleta; and one now in Texas, Ysleta del Sur. Pueblo Sovereignty was recently awarded the Arizona/New Mexico Book Award. A recent review described Pueblo Sovereignty as “an important book for scholars of Native history. It is exhaustively researched and balanced in its analysis and interpretation of the material.”
