Native American Law Students Association to Host Film Screening and Discussion
It's important to our organization to provide educational opportunities to our members, USD law students and to the larger South Dakota legal and non-legal community on issues that impact Indian Country and Indian Law,” said Josey Blare, a second-year law student and president of NALSA. “We hope that this event will be informational and continue the dialogue about the missing and murdered indigenous women in this country and what we as future leaders in our respective fields can do to combat it.”
The event will start with a screening of the documentary, "Wind River," a film focused on the issues surrounding murdered and missing indigenous women. That will be followed by a panel discussion.
Speakers include Elise Boxer, an assistant professor and coordinator of the Native American Studies program at USD, Elaine Yellow Horse, former prosecutor for the Oglala Sioux Tribe and Shane Sprague, former police officer for the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
The Native American Law Student Association serves as a cultural resource within the USD Law community by showcasing Indian law issues and scholars. The event is open to the public.
