Short Circuit 234 | Treaties With Tribes

Do you know your Indian Law from your Tribal Law? If not, Minnesota appellate attorney Scott Flaherty joins us to discuss a recent Seventh Circuit case where a Wisconsin band of the Ojibwe vindicated their treaty rights. Indian law is notoriously complicated with a lot of unsettling history, but Scott helpfully walks us through this latest chapter.

Captain Ahab himself also makes an appearance.
