I am delighted to be presenting a keynote speech titled “Race, Politics, and the Constitution” today for the National Council of Urban Indian Health (PR here). Francys Crevier (PLSI 2010), my former student, is the Executive Director of the organization.
My talk will take the theme of my forthcoming paper “Politics, Indian Law, and the Constitution” and apply those principles to demonstrate that the Indian Health Service owes a trust duty to urban Indians and related matters.
Those who know me best know Turtle Talk was inspired by the newsletter put out by the Grand Rapids Inter-Tribal Council. My mother worked there when I was a Benodjehn.
