Teaching Indian Law and Creating Agents of Change
Harrington, Christopher
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v27 n2 Nov 2015
Native students who take courses in Indian law at tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) generally gain insight and knowledge of the subject matter not available at mainstream institutions. The unique relationship between the Native students and the Native instructor allows for a better understanding of the emotional and sometimes traumatic study of federal Indian law. And, because of this unique relationship, Native students will feel more empowered in their abilities to make changes in their communities as future lawyers or change agents.
