Sovereignty through Welfare Reform? A Case Study of the Klamath Tribes of Oregon
The 1996 Welfare Reform Act gives Native American tribes and organizations the opportunity to administer their own welfare programs. This paper characterizes tribal welfare programs (tribal TANF) in general and provides a more detailed case study of the program administered by the Klamath Tribes in Oregon. The paper argues that success of tribal TANF programs cannot be measured solely at the individual, or caseload, level but must also consider the impact of tribal TANF on tribal sovereignty.
