I will be attending the University of Oregon law school’s conference to moderate a panel, “Native American Land Acquisition for Federally Unrecognized Tribes.” The invitation stems from stories I have written for High Country News and the Sacramento Bee about Maidu tribal leaders’ efforts to acquire Humbug Valley, near Lake Almanor, California. The panel includes Hawk Rosales, representing the InterTribal Sinkyones, Louise Dixey, representing the Shoshone-Bannick Tribe, and Edwin Wilson, representing the Maidu Summit.
