Public Law 280

Public Law 280 is a federal law of the United States establishing "a method whereby States may assume jurisdiction over reservation Indians," as stated in McClanahan v. Arizona State Tax Commission. 411 U. S. 164, 177. The Act mandated a transfer of federal law enforcement authority within certain tribal nations to state governments in six states: California, Nebraska, Wisconsin and, upon its statehood, Alaska. Other states were allowed to elect similar transfers of power if the Indian tribes affected give their consent. Since Nevada, South Dakota, Florida, Montana, North Dakota, Arizona and Utah have assumed some jurisdiction over crimes committed by tribal members on tribal lands; the Act added to a complex matrix of jurisdictional conflict that defined tribal governance at the end of the 20th century. In various states, local police, tribal police, BIA police, the FBI are the arms of a law enforcement system that enforces laws of tribes and the federal government; the Act added that tribe cannot put non-natives on trial when crime occurs on reservation land.

Under the Act, local sheriffs and state law enforcement agencies take tribal members to state courts for prosecution in cases arising from criminal matters within reservation boundaries. But most tribal governments and pueblos have adopted their own codes, administer court systems to adjudicate violations of the code. In states where the Act has not been applied, Bureau of Indian Affairs police respond to major crimes on reservations or pueblos; the FBI joins in investigations of the most serious criminal matters such as kidnappings. In those states, when allegations against tribal members arise from crimes on a reservation, the United States Attorney cites violations of the United States Code in a United States district court. Tribal and pueblo police enforce local codes in "non-PL 280" states.

Eugenia Errázuriz

Eugenia Huici Arguedas de Errázuriz was a Chilean patron of modernism and a style leader of Paris from 1880 into the 20th century, who paved the way for the modernist minimalist aesthetic that would be taken up in fashion by Coco Chanel. Her circle of friends and protégés included Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, Jean Cocteau, the poet Blaise Cendrars, she was of Basque descent. Eugenia Huici was born in Bolivia of Bolivian parents, one of thirteen children born to Ildefonso Huici y Peón, a silver magnate who had fled civil war and moved his family to their estates in [[La Calera, Chile|La a village in the banks of the Aconcagua river, some sixty kilometers northeast of Valparaíso, her mother was Manuela Arguedas. Among her siblings were two sisters and Ana, a brother, José, she was an aunt of Patricia Lopez-Willshaw née Lopez-Huici, married to Arturo Lopez-Willshaw. Eugenia was famous from an early age for her beauty; the young woman added to her silver-mine inheritance by marrying José Tomás Errázuriz.

Her first years of marriage were spent at Panquehue Errázuriz, the family's wine estate, where she had a son who died soon after birth. She soon convinced her husband to move to Paris in 1882, where his brother-in-law Ramón Subercaseaux Vicuña was the Chilean consul and was married to Amalia Errázuriz, a beauty, painted by John Singer Sargent; the couple settled in Paris. In the autumn of that year, they met John Singer Sargent while they were visiting Venice on their honeymoon, seeing José's brother who had taken a studio with Sargent at the Palazzo Rezzonico. Described as an extraordinary beauty, with a beaked nose and raven hair, she was painted by Sargent. Sargent became fond of Madame Errázuriz and would paint her several times. Besides Sargent, she was painted by Jacques-Emile Blanche, Giovanni Boldini, Paul Helleu, Augustus John, Ambrose McEvoy, Pablo Picasso. After the Errázuriz settled in Paris, they became friends with many in the same circle as the Subercaseauxes: the American heiress Winnareta Singer.

Eugenia was an avid supporter of the arts and she sought out artists, supporting both Stravinsky and Diaghilev at one point, establishing friendships with such noted writers and musicians as W. R. Sickert, Baron de Meyer, Jean Cocteau, Cecil Beaton. Around 1900, the Errázurizzes relocated to London. José Tomás Errázuriz spent much time in Switzerland. After a six-year stay in London, Eugenia Errazuriz relocated to Biarritz, she took up with her homosexual opium-taking nephew, Antonio de Gandarillas, known as Tony – the only child of her sister Rosa and Senator José Antonio Gandarillas Luco – and Tony's companion, an aspiring painter named Christopher Wood. Tony and Eugenia became friends of Sergei Diaghilev and of Artur Rubinstein. Pablo Picasso adored her, her villa, La Mimoseraie, was the design laboratory. In 1910, wrote Richardson, "she stood out for the unconventional sparseness of her rooms, for her disdain of poufs and potted palms and too much passementerie.... She appreciated things that were fine and simple, above all, things made of linen, deal, or stone, whose quality improved with laundering or fading, scrubbing or polishing.

She attended to the smallest detail in her house". For her, Elegance means elimination. Errazuriz hung curtains of unlined linen, whitewashed the walls like a peasant's home – a shocking decorating approach in 1914. I love my house as it looks clean and poor! she boasted. Cecil Beaton noted the red-tile floors, he wrote of her in The Glass of Fashion: Her effect on the taste of the last fifty years has been so enormous that the whole aesthetic of modern interior decoration, many of the concepts of simplicity...generally acknowledged today, can be laid at her remarkable doorstep. Her tea table offered simple fare, according to Beaton, who noted that her toast "was a work of art." Her niece rhapsodized, Everything in Aunt Eugenia's house smelled so good. It was reported that the towels smelled of lavender, that she washed her hair in rainwater. Errazuriz detested matched sets of furniture, mementos. Ruthless on the subject of disorder – down to the bureau drawers – she ordered: Throw out and keep throwing out.

This was an extension of her belief in the necessity of constant change: A house that does not alter, she liked to say, is a dead house. Errazuriz projected her purist mode into every corner of her life. If the kitchen is not as well kept as the salon... you cannot have a beautiful house, she declared. The designer Jean-Michel Frank became her most gifted disciple. Jean Cocteau introduced Blaise Cendrars to her, who proved a supportive if at times possessive patron. Around 1918 he visited her house and was so taken with the simplicity of the décor, he was inspired to write the sequence of poems D'Oultremer à Indigo, he stayed with Eugeni
