DEI efforts in the legal profession are supposed to help address underrepresentation and marginalization. Even in the DEI arena, however, it can be too easy to overlook, ignore, and further marginalize already marginalized groups. Native Americans know that all too well. Despite the length of time Native Americans have lived in North America, they remain a group that many people know little or nothing about.” Within the legal profession it’s not uncommon for DEI programs and efforts to exclude Native Americans. If we intend to embrace DEI fully and genuinely, then as a profession it behooves us to learn about Native Americans not merely as a quaint or exotic or interesting group, but a group whose history has been shaped by the application of law resulting in the denial justice. Join the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession for an intergenerational examination of highlights in Native American legal history.
