Podcasts: Serving The Legal Needs Of Urban Native Americans

Video and audio podcasts are now available from the landmark legal seminar/webinar “Serving The Legal Needs of Urban Native Americans”, held on 31 March 2011 in Seattle. The program was hosted by the law firm of Foster Pepper PLLC, in partnership with the Northwest Justice Project and the American Bar Association Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities’ Committee on Native American Concerns.

Tens of thousands of Native Americans live in and around America’s major cities, often far removed from their ancestral Tribes and families. Often battling poverty and discrimination, many urban Native Americans see their legal and civil rights undermined by a lack of resources and effective advocacy. The presentations in the podcasts demonstrate how specialized non-profit legal clinics in the Northwest are providing much-needed guidance and resources to urban Native Americans, and how this success can be replicated in cities throughout the US.
