Summer Indian Law: Indigenous Peoples in International Law @ Alexander Blewett III School of Law Tickets
Jul 23 @ 9:00 am – Jul 27 @ 12:00 pm
Summer Indian Law: Indigenous Peoples in International Law @ Alexander Blewett III School of Law | Missoula | Montana | United States

Indigenous peoples increasingly look to international law, and especially human rights instruments and institutions, in their efforts to survive as distinct communities with distinct cultures, political structures and relationships to traditional lands. Accordingly, this course will study aspects of the substance and procedure of international human rights law as it pertains to indigenous peoples, examining these developments through varying perspectives – doctrinal and political, pragmatic and critical.

Thematically, the course will examine the relationship of human rights to indigenous peoples’ own laws and traditions, the self-determination of states and peoples, and liberal democracy vis à vis other political traditions. More broadly, the focus on indigenous peoples provides a context for reflection on the extent to which international human rights law, with its classic focus on individual rights against the state, successfully addresses minority, group and intercultural claims in our global society.

Students will become familiar with indigenous peoples’ involvement in the human rights movement both before and after WWII, and corresponding developments (drafting of instruments, claims, reports, hearings and cases) in the United Nations, Organization of American States, and other institutions. Particular attention will be paid to the U.N. General Assembly’s 2007 adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

In addition, the course will focus on the challenges of implementing human rights standards to improve the situation of indigenous peoples in domestic settings, including the United States. We will study contemporary instances – with a focus on lawyering skills – in which indigenous peoples have used the international human rights system to address issues in self-governance, land, and subsistence rights; the welfare of children and women; religion and sacred sites; intellectual and cultural property; and education, climate change, natural resources, and economic development.

Public Planetarium Summer Matinee Series @ Star Gazing Room 013 Tickets
Jul 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Public Planetarium Summer Matinee Series @ Star Gazing Room 013 | Missoula | Montana | United States

Members of the community are invited to explore the wonders of the universe inside the planetarium at UM this summer. During each matinee show, experts will present on points of interest in the sky, from planets and stars to the Aurora Borealis.

UM’s Department of Physics and Astronomy will host 60-minute shows inside the Payne Family Native American Center Star Gazing Room from 1 to 2 p.m. and from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. on the following Thursdays:

  • June 21
  • June 28
  • July 12
  • July 26
  • Aug. 2
  • Aug. 16

Tickets cost $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 12 and under, and they are available for purchase at http://hs.umt.edu/physics/Outreach/default.php. All ages are welcome, but organizers find that children ages 7 and older enjoy the public shows the most, as the material often is presented at a more advanced level. Children must remain quiet and attentive for the entire program.

The maximum capacity for public shows is 28 people, so tickets are limited. Shows often sell out in advance, and tickets cannot be purchased at the door.

Attendees should arrive 10 minutes before the beginning of the show to check in. The planetarium entrance will be locked after the show begins. As part of the Elouise Cobell Land and Culture Institute, UM’s planetarium is housed in the Star Gazing Room in the basement of the Native American center in Room 013.
