“Indigenous Youth and Human Rights,” The American Indian Law Program at the University of Colorado Law School
- 6 to 8 p.m. in Room 206 of the Wolf Law Building at CU Boulder.
- The event will offer an inspiring talk from Walter Echo-Hawk, author, attorney, and president of the Pawnee Nation Business Council, and associated activities to encourage Boulder Indigenous Youth and allies, especially high school and undergraduate students, to learn about the human rights of Indigenous Peoples through the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Students will have the chance to learn and ask questions about the importance of asserting Indigenous peoples’ rights while also developing social media graphics and posters to educate others and become connected to the Global Indigenous Youth Movement! The event will inspire some Boulder Indigenous Youth to attend law school and to become activists and advocates themselves. The event will be catered by Tocabe: An American Indian Eatery.
- More information about this event will be shared under the 'Events & News' tab on the university's website.
