This outstanding Article by Professor Laura N. Coordes discusses the difficulty tribal debtors experience when dealing with financial distress. This Article reveals how and why the Bankruptcy Code is a poor fit for tribal debtors. Instead, this Article proposes that Congress enact a new statutory regime to provide structured debt relief for tribal entities. This Article analyzes analogous situations in which Congress looked beyond the Bankruptcy Code to provide debt relief when the Bankruptcy Code was unable to do so.
