Oklahoma tribe approves gay marriage as Native American groups debate issue

Oklahoma tribe approves gay marriage as Native American groups debate issue
The same-sex case known as Obergefell v Hodges has rippled through the 567 federally recognized Indian Nations. As sovereign entities, they are not necessarily bound by the Supreme Court decision, leaving many in the precarious position of trying to decide whether to make the hot-button issue part of their traditional law.
"Tribes don’t have to follow Obergefell. Tribes should, unless they have a good reason not to," said Robert Clinton, a professor specializing in tribal law at Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law.
