Arts and Ideas: Walter Echo-Hawk Lecture
Aurora University, Crimi Auditorioum presents In the Courts of the Conqueror: A Native American Perspective.
A Native American attorney, tribal judge, author, activist and law professor, Walter will discuss tribal life, culture and indigenous justice. Walter represents Indian tribes on important legal issues, such as treaty, water, prisoner and repatriation rights, and religious freedom. His career spans the pivotal years when Indian tribes reclaimed their land, sovereignty and pride, in a stride toward freedom. As a Native American rights attorney since 1973, Walter worked at the epicenter of a great social movement alongside visionary tribal leaders, visited tribes in indigenous habitats throughout North America, and was instrumental in the passage of landmark laws, including the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). He has written extensively about the rise of modern Indian nations, most recently in his new groundbreaking book “In the Courts of the Conqueror.”
