Title

Lunch Lecture with Stacy Leeds "(Un)telling the Lies the Teacher Told: A Call for Indigenous Scholars, Practitioners and Allies"

Professor Stacy Leeds will highlight how false narratives have often been at the core of United States actions that interfere with Indigenous self-determination and tribal governance. She will suggest topics and strategies for scholars and practitioners across several disciplines that might shape future work to correct and supplement the record. As an example, she will discuss her forthcoming book "Talton v. Mayes: A Story of Cherokee Justice".

Leeds joins ASU this semester as the Salt River Pima-Maricopa distinguished visiting professor of law. At her home institution of the University of Arkansas, she is vice chancellor for economic development and law dean emeritus. She was the first native woman to serve as a law school dean and the first woman to serve as a justice on the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court. She is teaching Federal Indian Law I in ASU’s ILP.
