St. Thomas to host Tribal Sovereignty Symposium.
Titled "Sacred Sites and Modern Lives: The Miami Circle and Beyond," the main focus of this year's symposium will be the Miami Circle. Speakers such as Miami-Dade Commissioner Katy Sorenson, Robert Carr of the Archaeological Historical Conservancy, Bobby Billie of the Independent Traditional Seminole Nation, and Tom Goldstein of Miami-Dade County Attorney's office will address the issue from political, scientific, spiritual, and legal standpoints.
In addition, professors from DePaul Law School, Lethbridge University in Canada, and Brigham Young University Law School will address the protection of sacred sites under domestic and international law.
Other sessions will address Indian culture and spirituality, gaming and economic development, and the restoration of the Everglades.
The registration fee is $165 for two days and $95 for one day. Fees include refreshments, lunch, dinner, and all conference materials, including the 2000 St. Thomas University Law Review Tribal Sovereignty Symposium issue.
