Witmer, Johnson, and Boehmke have published, “American Indian Policy in the States.”  The article investigates whether American Indian legislation is prevalent in state legislative agendas from 1998 to 2007.  It finds that states with legislative and executive insitutions that address Native issues, as well as larger American Indian popultions, are more likely to initiate and pass legislation relating to American Indians.  The article can be found here or here.
