last stop for sanity before reaching the south
Oh Indians... most of their population lives in crippling poverty, they have a huge drug and alcohol problem, a huge violence problem, and they're running around hating teh ghey's and whining about the Redskins...

It'll be interesting to see how the lawsuit pans out.

Indian Sky Gods must frown down upon such behavior.

Sorry, but why are people's heads exploding about laws from other nations?

Natives had what we now call transsexuals and didn't have a problem with them.

Two-Spirit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The presence of male-bodied two-spirits "was a fundamental institution among most tribal peoples"[4] and, according to Will Roscoe, both male- and female-bodied two-spirits have been documented "in over 130 North American tribes, in every region of the continent."

Some of the sovereign Native American nations permit LGBT marriage, some don't. The tribal lands do have to recognize LGBT marriages performed elsewhere it is legal.

Peaking out from the redwoods

and?

the supreme court also can't make a church perform a particular marriage.

the marriages performed elsewhere still have to be recognized as legal.

your point?
The Native American lesbian wants to sue over this. She can't sue. Tribal law is not beholden to the white man's law. Get it? Consider reading the linked article.

Tribal Sovereignty is not absolute. The Supreme Court has been chipping away at it for decades.
