Justice Delayed: When will the U.S. Live Up to Its 1835 Treaty with the Cherokee Nation?

The Cherokee Nation, under new chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr., calls on the United States to fulfill its obligation under the 1835 Treaty of New Echota, to seat a tribe member as a delegate in the U.S. House of Representatives. The delegate could vote in committee, join debate on the floor, and introduce legislation, but would lack an ultimate vote on bills. Can a Member of a sovereign entity sit in a lawmaking body of another sovereign government? Should the U.S. seat a delegate from each of the other tribes? Will America keep her promise to the Cherokee?
