Inaugural Conference to Discuss Revitalization of Trade Between Native Nations

Feb. 27, 2018

The University of Arizona Law’s Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy Program is hosting “All Roads Lead to Chaco Canyon: Revitalizing Trade Between Native Nations.” The inaugural conference will explore how indigenous peoples can use the global trade model to revitalize trade networks domestically and internationally.

International trade and international relations are not new concepts to the indigenous peoples of the world. Native nations in the western hemisphere once had expansive trade networks that extended from Canada to South America. Those trade networks were disrupted during European contact and have laid dormant ever since.

This conference will explore how, even in this modern economic era, “All Roads Lead to Chaco Canyon.”
