Equity Committee Multi-Media Event
The Austin Bar’S Equity Committee hosts a virtual discussion of the podcast This Land.
CLICK HERE to listen to This Land. You can also find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn Radio, or wherever you normally get your podcasts. The discussion will be moderated by Equity Committee Leadership Team Member Mishell Kneeland.
An 1839 assassination of a Cherokee leader and a 1999 murder case—two crimes nearly two centuries apart—provide the backbone for a 2020 Supreme Court decision that determined the fate of five tribes and nearly half the land in Oklahoma.
In eight easy-to-listen-to episodes, the podcast explores the concepts of tribal sovereignty, jurisdiction, whether large portions of Oklahoma are tribal lands, and, if so, what that means for persons who are not citizens of the five Nations whose tribal lands are at stake. It also brings to light historical aspects of indigenous relocation, common misconceptions about life for citizens of the tribes throughout the United States, tribal governments, and the laws that impact indigenous tribes and current U.S. citizens.
Please try to listen to all eight episodes prior to the discussion, but don’t worry if you haven’t listened to them all. This Land is also suitable for non-lawyers, so feel free to invite others to participate as well.
