PLACE and Power: A Conversation With Sarah Krakoff and Gerald Torres

Thursday, April 22, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Professors Sarah Krakoff and Gerald Torres will discuss issues of politics, justice and progress at the intersection of environmental governance and the rights and interests of Native American peoples. The discussion will focus on threats to lands and other natural and cultural resources, such as Bears Ears, and the exclusion of historic tribal uses from publicly managed lands, such as the Grand Canyon. Krakoff, a nationally recognized expert in Native American law, natural resources law and environmental justice, is the Moses Lasky Professor of Law at the University of Colorado. Torres, also a distinguished scholar of environmental law and federal Native American law, is a Professor of Environmental Justice at the Yale School of the Environment and professor of law at Yale Law School. The event is the fourth in the “PLACE and Power” series of virtual conversations exploring connections between human place-based relationships and the law and politics of environmental governance, including governance of the built environment.
