Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That all non citizen Indians born within the territorial limits of the United States be, and they are hereby, declared to be citizens of the United States: Provided That the granting of such citizenship shall not in any manner impair or otherwise affect the right of any Indian to tribal or other property.
Approved, June 2, See House Report No. History and background[ edit ] Under Article One of the United States Constitution"Indians not taxed" were not counted in assessing the population of a state for purposes of apportionment.
Some Native people could become citizens. The Dred Scott decision acknowledged that  but linked it to naturalization: They [the Indian tribes] may without doubt, like the subjects of any foreign government, be naturalized by the authority of Congress and become citizens of a state and of the United States, and if an individual should leave his nation or tribe, and take up his abode among the white population, he would be entitled to all the rights and privileges which would belong to an emigrant from any other foreign people.
However, the jurisdiction requirement was interpreted to exclude most Native Americans, and inthe Senate Judiciary committee further clarified the matter: WilkinsU. The syllabus of the decision explained that a Native person "who has not been naturalized, or taxed, or recognized as a citizen either by the United States or by the state, is not a citizen of the United States within the meaning of the first section of the Fourteenth Article of Amendment of the Constitution.

The indigenous people who were not included in citizenship numbers had already become citizens by other means; entering the armed forces, giving up tribal affiliations, and assimilating into mainstream American life were some ways that was done.

According to a survey by the Department of Interiorseven states still refused to grant Indians voting rights in States justified discrimination based on state statutes and constitutions.
Three main arguments for Indian voting exclusion were Indian exemption from real estate taxes; maintenance of tribal affiliation; and the notion that Indians were under guardianship, or lived on lands controlled by federal trusteeship. Finally, inthe states withdrew their prohibition on Indian voting because of a judicial decision.
Most tribes had communal property, and to have a right to the land, individual Indian people needed to belong to the tribe. Thus, dual citizenship was allowed. Earlier views on granting Indian citizenship had suggested allocating land to individuals.
Of such efforts, the Dawes Act was the most prominent. That Act allocated once-tribally-owned land to individual tribal members, and because they were landowners and eventually would pay taxes on the land and become "proficient members of society", they could be granted citizenship.
This idea was presented by a group of white American citizens, called "Friends of the Indian," who lobbied for the assimilation of indigenous people into American society.
They specifically hoped to do that by elevating indigenous people to the status of US citizens. Though the Dawes Act allocated land, the notion that this should be directly tied to citizenship was abandoned in the early 20th century in favor of a more direct path to American citizenship.
Those who supported it considered the Act a way to secure a long-standing political identity. Those who rejected it were worried about tribal sovereignty and citizenship.
Many leaders in the Native American community at the time, like Charles Santee, a Santee Sioux, were interested in Native American integration into the larger society but adamant about preserving the Native American identity.Are the indigenous citizens qualified as Hong Kong People in Government’s mind?
