Shannon Speed (Chickasaw), Professor of Gender Studies & Anthropology, and Director of the American Indian Studies Center, UCLA
Kristen Carpenter, Council Tree Professor of Law, and Director of the American Indian Law Program at University of Colorado Law School
Angela Riley (Potawatomi), Professor of Law, and Director of Native Nations Law and Policy Center, UCLA School of Law.
How is the violence to which indigenous women migrants are subjected related to “neoliberal multicriminalism” and settler structures of indigenous dispossession and elimination? And how might migration law consider the colonial origins and impacts that undergird state policies on territorial sovereignty and border regulation?
