Professor Porter Addresses Regional Law Librarian Conference

From Access Services Librarian, Rosemarie Romano:

Professor Rob Porter delivered the lecture "Casinos, Land
Claims & Taxes: Understanding New York’s On-Going Indian
War," at the 50th Anniversary Annual Meeting of The Association
of Law Libraries of Upstate New York (ALLUNY) in Albany on
October 1, 2004. Professor Porter outlined the historical background
and explained the origins of some of the current conflicts between the
Indian Nations and the state and local governments of New York.
He discussed legal and social aspects of the relations between the
indigenous peoples and those who displaced them, including insights
from his experience as Attorney General of the Seneca Nation.
He also offered some thoughts on how those problematic relations might
be improved.
