Indigenous Peoples and the Law of the Land

Indigenous Peoples continue to face new challenges as climate change impacts the environment, Native land rights and their communities. Professors Stephanie Fitzgerald from the English department and Elizabeth Kronk will each present one case study. Students interested in learning more about the Indigenous Studies graduate program, the law school, the Tribal Law and Government Center, and the joint degree between Law and Indigenous Studies are encouraged to attend.
