ACS Minneapolis-St. Paul: McGirt v. Oklahoma: Analysis and Implications for Minnesota

Join us for a conversation about the historic McGirt v. Oklahoma ruling and the implications for Minnesota. The panelists for this discussion will feature Judge Colette Routel, James Nichols, and Forrest Tahdooahnippah. Judge Routel's amicus brief was cited in the Supreme Court's decision.

The Supreme Court's landmark decision last year in McGirt v. Oklahoma was a tremendous victory for Indian tribes, affirming that Congressional promises to Native Americans still carry the weight of law and holding that 19 million acres of land comprising virtually all of Eastern Oklahoma remains Native land. The McGirt decision, however, carries consequences that extend far beyond Oklahoma. Join us for a discussion of the implications of McGirt and how it impacts Minnesota.
