User “Nick” asks this wonderful and interesting question which I now pass on to the readers:
“One reoccuring concern that’s arisen with research I’ve been conducting pertains to jurisdiction with Native American reservations. The area I work on has a small reservation within a larger one. Suppose I find a specimen, who would have rights to it -the Tribe or the federal government since all Reservations are legally “trust” lands. Could an animal be regarded as “cultural” property for a recognized tribe?”
Does anyone have any information or discussion points to help answer “Nick’s” question?
