McGirt v. Oklahoma: Understanding the Decision and its Implications for Indian Country

For over two centuries, sovereign Native nations have asserted their rights and negotiated their relationships with the United States through treaties and federal court decisions. On July 9, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that a major part of the land of Oklahoma is still located within the Musogee Creek Indian reservation. Join OHS for a special presentation, offering context and analysis to understand the history behind the decision and what its implications may be for Native nations in Oklahoma and across the United States.
