Process[ edit ] Termination began with a series of laws directed at dismantling tribal sovereignty. From June until Septembersix laws were passed that gave states criminal or limited-criminal jurisdiction over tribes and reservations within those states.
Most such acts included the cessation of federal recognition and all the federal aid that came along with that designation.
