Native Rights and the Conservative Court
Join the American Constitution Society on Monday, November 13 at 12:30 p.m. in Room 5E for a panel discussion on the rights and challenges of Native Americans in the 21st century. We will be joined by Paul Brannen of the Georgia Indian Council and the Cherokee of Georgia Tribal Council, Anissa Patton, Child Welfare Law Specialist Attorney for Fulton County, and our own Prof. Douglas Waters and Prof. Jerry Bruce of the Barton Center and the Georgia Office of the Child Advocate. Topics will include federal and state tribal law, the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), the recent Haaland v. Brackeen decision, and how Justice Gorsuch has shocked everyone by emerging as a particularly strident defender of Native rights. Lunch from Cava will be served.
