Power, Access and Representation in America's Tribal, State and Federal Sovereigns
Friday, September 17, 2021, 10:00 AM
Sponsored by LWV of Santa Fe County, New Mexico. A talk by Stanford Law Professor Elizabeth Reese, Yunpoví (Tewa: Willow Flower), Assistant Professor of Law, Stanford Law School. She is a scholar of American Indian tribal law, federal Indian law, and constitutional law focusing on the intersection of identity, race, citizenship, and government structure. Her scholarship examines the way government structures, citizen identity, and the history that is taught in schools, can impact the rights and powers of oppressed racial minorities within American law.
Reese began her legal career as a civil rights litigator at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund where she led a desegregation case in one of the largest school districts in Florida and worked on the challenge to Alabama’s Voter ID law.
A graduate of Harvard Law School (JD), Cambridge University (M.Phil.), and Yale University (BA), she is tribally enrolled at Nambé Pueblo.
