Join the Hazardous Material Transport Outreach Network for the second installment in our 2022 summer webinar series. 

Presenter Kekek Stark, assistant professor of law at the Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana will examine tribal treaty rights and how they apply to energy infrastructure projects, such as coal terminals and crude oil pipelines. The presenter will describe tribal law and treaty rights, their role in protecting natural resources, and the assertion of those rights by Native American and First Nations tribes as regulatory components to energy infrastructure projects. The presenter will also provide historical and present-day examples of treaty interpretation by United States courts.

A live question and answer session will follow the presentation.
