Since the first court decision to articulate Native American
law back in 1823, our nation's courts have repeatedly invoked
historical "facts" as a basis for fashioning judicial doctrines
that have been prejudicial and harmful to Native Americans.
This important symposium will reveal that many of our modern
Native law doctrines are based in fiction, not fact. Join us as
we explore the historical foundations of key court decisions
impacting Native Americans. Speakers include Stuart Banner,
UCLA School of Law; Walter Echo-Hawk (Pawnee), Crowe &
Dunlevy, Oklahoma; Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee), Quinn
Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, New York; and Lindsay Robertson,
University of Oklahoma College of Law. Kevin Gover (Pawnee),
director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American
Indian, will moderate. The symposium is cosponsored by the
National Native American Bar Association and the Federal Bar
Association Indian Law Section.
