Call for Proposals: AALS Indian Nations & Indigenous Peoples Section

August 10, 2015 at 2:43 pm Leave a comment

The Indian Nations and Indigenous Peoples Section of the AALS invites proposals on the following topic: How do Indian Tribes, First Nations, and other Indigenous Peoples regulate same-sex marriage, same-sex relationships, and adoption and foster parenting by same-sex couples and LGBT individuals?  What role does evidence of Tribal culture and tradition, if any, play in these decisions?  Additionally, what are the processes by which Tribes change their laws with respect to same-sex relationships?  More broadly, what are the ways in which Tribes, First Nations and other Indigenous Peoples regulate sexuality and family structure?

Send proposals of 500 to 1,000 words summarizing a paper or work in progress you would present to an AALS panel on these issues by September 1 to Michalyn Steele at  The selected panelists will be invited to present their work in a joint program of the Indian Nations and Indigenous Peoples and the Law and Anthropology Section.  The program will be held at the AALS Annual Meeting, January 6-10, 2016.  Selected papers will be published in the William Mitchell Law Review.  For more information, email Ann Tweedy at
