Gabe Galanda to Address ATNI on Federal Indian Consultation Right Developments

Gabe Galanda has been invited to address the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians General Assembly next Wednesday, February 2, at ATNI's Winter Conference at the Coquille Tribe's Mill Casino Resort in Coos Bay, Oregon. His address is titled, "The Federal Indian Consultation Right: Exercising It" (download the slides). Gabe will provide an update on the Department of Interior's Draft Consultation Policy; the United States' endorsement of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People and the international indigenous consultation norms codified therein; the import of the Quechan Tribe's successful litigation effort to halt a solar power project development on tribal sacred lands as a result of the United States' failure to consult.

Gabe recently published The Federal Indian Consultation Right: A Frontline Defense Against Tribal Sovereignty Incursion, in The Federal Indian Lawyer.
