In the beginning, the question of how to view Indian nationhood and citizenship wasn’t a question at all. We are reminded that how things came to be the way they are evolved in a history entirely outside the control, and indeed outside the view, of the indigenous peoples of the world, and that the evolution of the idea of citizenship and its application to indigenous peoples isan idea which has been created and molded to suit the needs of people other than the subjects.
