This chapter situates the Historical Court within legal discourse and performance in order to assess both its radical potential and its conservative undercurrents. Legal performance allowed the petitioners to make a claim for Nisqually sovereignty, but the unofficial nature of the court also worked against an expansion of rights through which sovereignty could be exercised.

Keywords:   Washington State, Historical Court, Inquiry and Justice, legal performance, Nisqually sovereignty
