dc.description D Space: Transcript for Martinez v. Romney, No. 9717 Civil (Trial transcript for Santa Clara Pueblo v. Martinez, 436 U.S. 49 (1978) en_US
dc.description.abstract This is the transcript for the Federal District Court trial for Santa Clara Pueblo v. Martinez, one of the most cited U.S. Supreme Court decisions and the significant case for affirming tribal sovereignty, sovereign immunity, and tribal governments’ authority to determine the qualifications for membership. The trial transcript style reflects that the original case included the then Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, George Romney, as a defendant. By the time of the district court proceeding on November 25, 1974, Romney and other defendants had been dropped. A search of the Westlaw and Lexis data bases shows that this case is among the most cited in constitutional and federal law as well as the focus of continuing law review articles and critiques by scholars. Until this transcript was made available to the UNM School of Law Library, the scholarship on Santa Clara Pueblo v. Martinez was done without the benefit of the trial transcript details. This transcript reveals a fuller picture of the controversy. It documents the evidence and testimony from tribal members, Pueblo government officials, and the key “outside” expert, Florence Hawley Ellis, Ph.D., Anthropologist. This transcript was made available for usage in D space through the efforts of Tim Vollmann, Gloria Valencia-Weber, and the UNM Law Library. The first scholarly publications resulting from the availability of this document are from: Gloria Valencia-Weber, Santa Clara Pueblo v. Martinez: 25 Years of Disparate Cultural Visions an Essay Introducing the Case for Re-Argument before the American Indian Nations Supreme Court, 14 KAN. J. L. AND PUB.
