BOOKMARKED
In its 1903 decision in the case of Lone Wolf v. Hitchcock, the United States Supreme Court rejected the
Line efforts of three Native American tribes
(5) to prevent the opening of tribal lands
to non-Indian settlement without tribal
consent. In his study of the Lone
Wolf case, Blue Clark properly
emphasizes the Court’s assertion
(10) of a virtually unlimited unilateral power
of Congress (the House of Represen-
tatives and the Senate) over Native
American affairs. But he fails to note
the decision’s more far-reaching
(15) impact: shortly after Lone Wolf, the
federal government totally abandoned
negotiation and execution of formal
written agreements with Indian tribes
as a prerequisite for the implemen-
(20) tation of federal Indian policy. Many
commentators believe that this change
had already occurred in 1871 when—
following a dispute between the
House and the Senate over which
(25) chamber should enjoy primacy in
Indian affairs—Congress abolished
the making of treaties with Native
American tribes. But in reality the
federal government continued to nego-
(30) tiate formal tribal agreements past
the turn of the century, treating these
documents not as treaties with sover-
eign nations requiring ratification by the
Senate but simply as legislation to be
(35) passed by both houses of Congress.
The Lone Wolf decision ended this
era of formal negotiation and finally
did away with what had increasingly
become the empty formality of obtain-
ing tribal consent.

Q12: C
(front)…In his study of the Lone Wolf case…he fails to note the decision’s more far-reaching impact ….(end) The Lone Wolf decision ended this era of formal negotiation

Q13: D
(mid)…1871 when— following a dispute between the House and the Senate over which chamber should enjoy primacy in Indian affairs—Congress abolished the making of treaties with Native American tribes.

Q14: B (looks like I got this wrong according to others. I was between B or D - appreciate if you can explain! My thinking was that the weight of the Blue Clark example was on its failure to recognize the more far-reaching impact. Commentators believed otherwise, but in fact LW ended the era. It doesn't seem as it is brought up strictly to refute the commentators, rather the author is drawing an example to support his/her view.)

…he fails to note the decision’s more far-reaching impact… Many commentators believe… But in reality the federal government continued to negotiate… (“In fact”) The Lone Wolf decision ended this era of formal negotiation and finally did away

Q15: C
(mid)…the federal government totally abandoned negotiation and execution of formal written agreements with Indian tribes as a prerequisite for the implementation of federal Indian policy.….(end)The Lone Wolf decision ended this era of formal negotiation

Hi BB,

Can someone explain about the relationships between Supreme court/Federal government/Congress etc...
I have seen so many passages related to them. I think understanding of this structure by, say US citizens or those who are aware of it, makes it a lot easier for them to understand the passage from the go.

Can you direct me to some link where I ca get more information about this.

Hi - Try wikipedia :-)

In all seriousness though, you do not need to know anything about the US system for this to make sense.

You can of course learn about it, it will not hurt, but if I had limited time to revise - I'd concentrate on the core GMAT skills...

Can somebody explain me the details of this passage in simple language?

I struggled to understand the sentence below.

"In his study of the Lone
Wolf case, Blue Clark properly
emphasizes the Court’s assertion
(10) of a virtually unlimited unilateral power
of Congress (the House of Represen-
tatives and the Senate) over Native
American affairs. "

Does this mean that Clark is pointing that the Congress (Senate and HOR) has used its law-making power unjustly against the tribes??
