In this chapter, we review the small body of literature on delinquency in Indian communities and discuss the limitations of using the Uniform Crime Reports, Bureau of Indian Affairs and off-reservation date to make generalizations about the experience of Indian peoples with crime across the nation. We conclude with an analysis of eleven years of tribal arrest/booking data from one American Indian community not previously studies and discuss the implications of this research for future study.
