Reconciling Interests: A Focus on The Indian Child Welfare Act Beyond "Baby Veronica"
Join us for a special opportunity to meet Mr. Phil Katzen and hear his unique perspective on United States v. Washington. United States v. Washington is the long-running treaty fishing rights case, where Mr. Katzen frequently served as a lead or coordinating counsel for the plaintiff tribes, including a leading role in vindicating the tribes' treaty rights to regulate salmon harvests, to a fair share of the salmon, to take a fair share of shellfish from public and private property, and to protect the habitat necessary to fulfill the tribes' treaty rights to take fish.
Erica Wolf, Managing Attorney for the Center will be presenting at this event
