26th Amah Mutsun Speaker Series Inherent Tribal Sovereignty In Practice: Government-to-Government Relationships in California with Dr. Olivia Chilcote

This presentation discusses how non-federally recognized tribes in California enact inherent tribal sovereignty via government-to-government relations with the state and argues this represents official state recognition.
