TALK DESCRIPTION:

Native Americans are 19X more likely than white households to lack indoor plumbing. More than four in five Native American women and men have experienced violence in their lifetime. Despite the passage of the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, many Native Americans continue to be excluded from the democratic process and their right to vote suppressed. Each of these issues, and many others, continue to hinder Native Americans across the state. Join Herm Olsen and Heather Tanana as they discuss the challenges that Native Americans face and how Utah’s legal community can help.

This event is a continuation of the discussion on October 8 titled, Part I: The Development of Indian Law within Utah and the United States

PANELISTS:

Heather Tanana, Assistant Professor, S.J. Quinney College of Law, Associate Faculty, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Herm Olsen, Attorney, Hillyard Anderson & Olsen, Member of the Board of Directors for the Navajo Legal Aid Services
