This seminar (formerly taught as Law and Indigenous Peoples: Special Topic) considers the issues arising out of the conflict between indigenous peoples and newcomers who gain political control of an area and establish a nation. The predominant focus will be federal Indian law, but the course will also address the law of indigenous peoples in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The course will consider issues of land ownership, conflicting legal systems, and federalism. The seminar paper may be used to satisfy the Advanced Writing Requirement. Students, however, may opt to write several shorter papers.
