Wednesday, February 24, 2021 - The UND School of Law will be hosting a national Indian law competition on Friday and Saturday. And Friday will also feature a tribal flag ceremony. The five American Indian tribes of North Dakota have presented their national flags to the law school for permanent display. Here to tell us about the events, and about the Northern Plains Indians Law Center at UND, is James Grijalva, UND professor of law. ~~~ Tribes are watching closely as Deb Haaland faces confirmation as Interior Secretary. The hope is for a secretary who deeply understands tribal issues and is ready to act accordingly. She’s appearing at Senate confirmation hearings this week. Indian Country Today’s Mark Trahant comments. ~~~ A Page Turner event on March 7 will feature the first eight students of the Little Mo Writers Incubator Project. Here to tell us about that and other literary events is Sue Skalicky, program coordinator with Humanities North Dakota. ~~~ Speaking of writers, here’s Eliza Blue with this month’s Postcard from the Prairie.
