Can you please explain to me what this means. Chief Justice John Marshall, in Cherokee Nation vs. Georgia held that the court had no juisdiction, under the U.S. Constitution, to deal with this issue because the Cherokees were a domestic, dependent nation- not truly sovereign nation.

  • History -

    Essentially the court said that Georgia's laws applied to the Cherokees because it wasn't really an independent nation as the Cherokees had pleaded.
