ABSTRACT
The article examines the status of the Indian Country following the U.S. Supreme Court decision on the case City of Sherrill versus Oneida Indian Nation. It states that the U.S. Congress has the sole authority to modify the status of land determined to be an Indian Reservation under the Commerce Clause in Article I Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Accordingly, the Supreme Court has ruled that holding a land bought in fee on the open market by an Indian tribe could not be considered as Indian country so as to remove such land from local jurisdiction.
