Indigenous Peoples of the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) in Bangladesh

The Chittagong Hill Tracts—home to 13 indigenous peoples—is situated in the southeastern corner of Bangladesh. It consists of three hill districts bordering India to the north and north-east and Myanmar to the east. The indigenous peoples of this region are struggling for, among other things, de jure recognition as “indigenous peoples,” land rights, right to culture, and self-determination. This short essay charts the brief history of alienation and struggle of the CHT indigenous peoples.

Corporations

 

CORPORATIONS

Entrepreneurs planning to go into business can opt to organize their business structure as a corporation.  (Tribal governments may also form corporations to carry on economic development on or off the reservation, but that is not the subject of this article).  Corporations are creatures of statute, and a state or tribal statute will detail how the corporation may be formed and what its ongoing requirements are.  (Note that most tribal statutes deal with creating tribal rather than private corporations.)

Partnerships

 

 

PARTNERSHIPS

A partnership is a relatively simple business structure to organize and operate.  At its most basic, a partnership is an entity consisting of two or more partners, established to carry on a business.  No papers need to be filled out or filed with the state.  The only state requirement, typically, is that the partnership name be registered if the name used is fictitious.

Native Hawaiians

 

Native Hawaiians have a unique relationship with the federal government which differs from the relationship between the government and American Indians. Unlike many American Indian tribes and Alaskan Natives, Native Hawaiians are not federally recognized. Native Hawaiian refers to the indigenous Polynesian people of the Hawaiian Islands. Native Hawaiians trace their ancestry back to prehistoric Marquesan, Tahitian, Samoan (potentially Tongan) settlers of Hawaii.
