American Indian Tribes May Be Able to Discriminate

I work for an American Indian tribe. I am white. I am the only white person that they have hired. Many of my friends have applied to work for the tribe but they simply refuse because the people are not American Indian. Is that legal?

By Deskin Law Firm
Discrimination law applies to American Indian tribes if the business that your friends are applying to work for is a corporation owned by the tribe. An unincorporated Indian tribe is exempt from discrimination laws.
