Call for Papers: 

When the Standing Rock Sioux tribe filed suit in US District Court against the Army Corps of engineers in July 2016, they argued that the Dakota Access Pipeline “threatens the Tribe’s environmental and economic well-being and would damage and destroy sites of great historic, religious, and cultural significance to the tribe,” issues facing indigenous peoples worldwide. In light of this year’s theme, “Religion and the Most Vulnerable” this jointly-sponsored session explores the implications of legal strategies in pursuing protection of indigenous sovereignty, religious freedom, and ecological justice. Papers in this session address legal frameworks faced by indigenous movements including those of Standing Rock (#NoDAPL), Mauna Kea (Large Telescope construction), Sami (Hydro-electric plant plans), and Ktunaxa Nation (Grizzly Bear Spirit home protection).
