News for Students - (Friday Morning):
Supreme Court debates 'inherent' tribal sovereignty in new ruling
THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2016
s Indian Country continues to wait for a decision in a closely-watched tribal jurisdiction case, a different sovereignty dispute is once again exposing divisions within the U.S. Supreme Court.
By a narrow majority vote, the justices on Thursday held that the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico cannot prosecute people who were already punished for the same crime under the laws of the United States. The court held that Puerto Rico's constitutional authority derived from Congress and not from its "inherent" sovereignty.
But while the case had nothing to do with Indian Country, the court'smajority decision, a concurring opinion and a dissent in fact mentioned tribal sovereignty and not always in a positive light
Writing for the majority, Justice Elena Kagan reaffirmed that tribes are "separate" sovereigns from the United States. That means they can prosecute people who were already punished under federal law without violating the Double Jeopardy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Read more >

The district court held that the Gaming Commission’s approval of the 2013 gaming ordinance was not “major federal action” within the meaning of NEPA requiring the preparation of an environmental impact statement.

Remembering the Ali:
What Do We Do When Our Heroes Die? Native American Leadership and the Future Gyasi Ross - 6/7/16
In case you live under a rock, the great Muhammad Ali died this past Friday.
Rightly or wrongly, Muhammad Ali was the face of black America for much of the past 50 years. For much of America he symbolized the vocal, prideful and urgent voice of black youth when he predicted loudly that he would knock out the seemingly invincible Sonny Liston. He did exactly what he said. He symbolized the angry/scary black activist, slighted for hundreds of years, when he announced that he was joining the Nation of Islam (“Black Muslims” at the time) and that he would change his name from “Cassius Clay” to “Muhammad Ali.” He symbolized tolerance and maturity when he became a symbol of peace, a diplomat and an ambassador. He became mainstream, as black culture did. Read more >
