Preface
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Preface vii When the American Indian Law Deskbook was conceived, the Conference of Western Attorneys General recognized that any Indian law treatise would soon become outdated unless supplemented regularly. The absence of supple­ mentation is a major drawback in other treatises in this area. As with the main volume, the 2011 Supplement represents a collaborative effort in which many CWAG member states participated. In particular, I would like to thank Jas. Jeffrey Adams and Stephanie Striffler of Oregon, Fronda Woods and Rob Costello of Washington, Jennifer Henderson of California, Dawn Williams of Arizona, Charlie McGuigan and John Guhin of South Dakota, and Charles Carvell of North Dakota for their assistance in drafting and reviewing various parts of this 2011 Supplement. A special thank you goes to Clay Smith of Idaho, our long-time editor, who has kept this project going for many years. In preparing the 2011 Supplement, an effort was made to review all decisions contained in reporters and advance sheets issued prior to July 2011. Federal statutes, administrative regulations and law review articles, often are quite helpful in Indian law, were also updated.
