Native American Heritage Month at ASU Law

To kick off Native American Heritage month, the ILP invited all of ASU Law to a movie screening of Killers of the Flower Moon on Nov. 3.

Professor Robert Miller and panelists appeared on The Scholars’ Circle podcast segment “Osage Nation (tribe): history, oil, murders and gender dynamics.” In the panel, Miller discussed the legal situation and exploitation of Native Peoples in Oklahoma.

The ASU Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) visited the Honorable Diane Humetewa (’93), a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, at the Sandra Day O’Connor Courthouse.

On Nov. 8, NALSA and the American Constitution Society co-hosted a lunch lecture featuring Professor Robert Miller and discussed Native American influence on the U.S. Constitution. 

On Nov. 15, NALSA hosted a brown bag luncheon with April Olson (’06), partner at Rothstein Donatelli LLP and Kiyoko Patterson (’03), Assistant U.S. Attorney. We appreciate Rothstein Donatelli LLP for sponsoring this event.

On Nov. 18, students gathered for a “NALSA Friendsgiving” to strengthen community and enjoy a good meal.

NALSA students held a food drive and delivered donations to the Phoenix Indian Center.

In late October, ASU NALSA spent an afternoon with Ron Rosier (’95), of counsel at Lewis Roca and Steven Heeley, of counsel at Rothstein Donatelli LLP and learned about career opportunities for Indian law attorneys.
