Abstract

After more than a 100-year American presence California Indians gained their proper status in the American society. The injustices of the 1800s led to a large public outcry and demand that Congress reform its historic manner of dealing with Native Americans. Various laws were passed in the 20th century, for example the Indian Reorganization Act in 1934 which tried to strenghten the role of Indian tribal organization. Then the new Rancheria Act of 1958 was enacted which relocated Indians from reservations to cities. Finally, the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988 ensured the right to gambling for Indians and today opening casinos seem the only solution to drag away Indians out of poverty.
