GLIFWC Donates Legal Advocacy Books to College
From GLIFWC Facebook page
In support of tribal legal advocacy education, GLIFWC’s Division of Intergovernmental Affairs donated several volumes of essential texts on Indian law to Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College this week. Totaling 74 books, the texts are destined for students who enroll in the legal advocacy program currently under development at LCO College.
Philomena Kebec, GLIFWC Policy Analyst, delivered the books following a full day of presentations to students from Lac Courte Oreilles primary and Waadookodaading schools during annual Treaty Week activities. Kebec and a collection of GLIFWC staff shared information on treaty rights, off-reservation law enforcement, winter harvesting and the role of the Sandy Lake Tragedy in solidifying Ojibwe rights in the Ceded Territories.
