Gay marriage discouraged within American Indian tribes
Celebrations from this summer’s landmark decision on same-sex marriage haven’t quite reached all corners of the 50 states — specifically American Indian lands. Federally recognized tribes able to self-govern aren’t subject to decisions like the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 vote to legalize same-sex marriage — one change they aren’t likely to mirror in their own communities. Many have passed laws preventing same-sex marriages on tribal lands; other tribes still under federal jurisdiction generally discourage it.
