Respecting the River: How Indigenous Communities Use the Anglo Legal System to Protect Natural Resources

Sponsor: NALSA

How can indigenous communities protect their sacred and culturally-vital natural resources within an Anglo legal system that may not acknowledge the rights of these spaces? Stanford’s Native American Law Students Association is proud to have indigenous attorneys from both California and New Zealand discuss their experiences advocating for the rivers, salmon, and other resources of their people in a foreign legal system. Join us as we learn more about standing and personhood, environmental laws, and creative lawyering that is allowing for new management solutions.
