A South Dakota Historical Society Press eBook Short

Lawson's work on American Indian lands opened the discussion of what government policies and bureaucracy have done to heirship of lands on American Indian reservations in South Dakota, illuminating for the first time the harsh truths of this problematic topic.

Stark descriptions of what ownership of land really means make this essay a compelling and ominous read. Lawson later expanded his work into other essays and then into the South Dakota Historical Society Press book Dammed Indians Revisited.

His essay, available here as an ebook short won the Western History Association's  Ray Allen Billington Award in 1983.
