New from ProQuest – Indian Claims Insight. Using this resource, researchers can quickly search the full text of all content related to each Indian claim and easily narrow results. Unique compiled docket histories provide legal researchers with the ability to look at the various claims for individual tribes against the government. The inclusion of histories for both Court of Claims and Indian Claims Commissions dockets allows researchers to easily grasp the changes in the Indian claims process throughout U.S. history up to the present time. A Libguide is also available for Indian Claims Insight with more information.
Below are just a few of Dissertations written using information from the Indian Claims Commission.   
McMillen, C. W. (2004). Rewriting history and proving property rights: Hualapai indian activism and the law of land claims in the twentieth century .
Pinkoski, M. (2007). Julian steward and american anthropology: The science of colonialism. 
Rosenthal, H. D. (1976). Their day in court: A history of the indian claims commission.  
ProQuest will be hosting a webinar on February 16th presented by Andrea Sevetson (Training and Consulting Partner) and Rick Nelson (Product Manager for Indian Claims Insight). During the webinar we’ll look at what is in the database, and what is coming, and explore the treaties and the resulting Claims. And we will take a deep dive into the documents that make up the Claims that surround the current controversy in Harney County, Oregon (with regard to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge).  
Please click this link to register for the webinar and we look forward to having you join us to learn more about Indian Claims Insight.
