Tsosie chapter published in a book on Indians and energy
, Executive Director of the Indian Legal Program, has written the chapter, “Cultural Sovereignty and Tribal Economic Development: Creating a Land Ethic for the Twenty-First Century,” to be published in the book,
Indians & Energy: Exploitation and Opportunity in the American Southwest
In the chapter, Tsosie argues that tribes maintain some degree of self-determination when it comes to climate change and energy polices, even though they are typically lumped together with the United States during international negotiations about the issue.
Tsosie, a Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar, teaches in the areas of Indian law, property, bioethics, and critical race theory, as well as seminars in international indigenous rights and in the College’s Tribal Policy, Law, and Government Master of Laws program. She is a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Law and Global Affairs, and an Affiliate Professor in the American Indian Studies Program at ASU. Tsosie has written and published widely on doctrinal and theoretical issues related to tribal sovereignty, environmental policy and cultural rights, and is the author of many prominent articles dealing with cultural resources and cultural pluralism.
