MSU ILPC & Indian Law Clinic students presented at the Jackson Community Forum: Impact of Land Treaties.
As a side note–this event, hosted at the Jackson District Library and open to the public, was very well attended. The questions we received were all thoughtful, curious, and kind. Our students did well and felt welcomed. This event came out of a project volunteers in the city did around the 200 anniversary of 1815 survey of Michigan–which happened because of the Treaty of Detroit. Instead of ending there, the organizers decided they needed to know more about treaties and how they work today. Because the event went so well, the librarians are planning to have more events on other issues involving Native communities in Michigan.
