Indigenous Storytelling and the Law flyer Art by Melanie YazzieIndigenous Storytelling and Law Symposium

March 17 & 18, 2017

Presented by the Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies

This interdisciplinary symposium will explore ways Indigenous narratives are spoken, heard, and acted upon in legal settings. 

· What does it mean for law to solicit Native testimony?  

· Who tells such stories, with what authority, and with what protections and possible consequences?  

· How do traditions and stories get reshaped in legal contexts? How might storytelling challenge law?
