In Nebraska v. Parker, the Supreme Court concluded that a 1882 statute opening the western part of the Omaha Reservation to non-Indian settlement did not diminish the Reservation’s boundaries, unanimously affirming the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. The United States District Court for the District of Nebraska and the Omaha Tribal Court had previously reached similar conclusions. This presentation focuses on the United States’ involvement in this litigation to protect treaty boundaries of the Reservation and the legal principle that only Congress can diminish reservation boundaries.
