Student Presenters

Two 3L students from the MSU College of Law Indigenous Law & Policy Center gave a Feb. 18 presentation at the Jackson District Library: “Impact of the Land Treaties in Michigan on Native Americans.” Samantha Smith (left), a member of the Saginaw Chippewa tribe, and Corrinna Bailey presented on the treaties the U.S. Government negotiated with Native Americans, prompted by land surveyed for sale. The law students also discussed how treaties made a century ago still affect Michigan tribes and their people.
