Taking place at the conference will be a presentation of ‘Warrior Lawyers: Defenders of Sacred Justice’, a documentary by Audrey Geyer.

Warrior Lawyers: Defenders of Sacred Justice’ is a one-hour PBS documentary that is particularly timely and relevant given our country’s current reckoning with racial inequity and systemic racism. The program focuses on the stories of Michigan Native American Lawyers, Tribal Judges and their colleagues who work with Native Nations, their citizens and mainstream institutions to achieve healing and Sacred Justice. These unseen role models strive daily to address, repair and resolve unique and complicated historical, governmental, legal, judicial and social welfare issues, which are most often rooted in discrimination, historical trauma and cultural destruction. Come take a journey into past and present day Indian Country to learn of untold stories that shine a light on Native Americans rising up to create a new path for today and for the next Seven Generations.
