Reviving Tribal Kinship

Thursday, January 17, 12–1:15 p.m.
James E. Rogers College of Law, Room 156

Join the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy (IPLP) Program for our Spring 2019 Speaker Series to learn from leading legal advocates.

IPLP alumnus Gabe Galanda (’00) will discuss how at least 80 tribes have devolved from traditional kinship systems to disenrollment, blood quantum and other non-indigenous practices. Gabe will call for a kinship revival in Indian Country. He, along with his colleagues at Galanda Broadman, PLLC, have defended hundreds of tribal citizens from disenrollment, including the Nooksack 306 who have been fighting their disenrollment since 2012.

*All IPLP speaker series events are free and open to the public and take place at the James E. Rogers College of Law, 1201 E Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to
