Safety for Native Women Post Castro Huerta Webinar On-demand
Safety for Native Women Post Castro Huerta - Webinar On-demand

Cherokee Nation attorney Mary Kathryn Nagle will explain the implications of the Supreme Court's recent decision in Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta with a focus on how the decision will impact issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault crimes committed against Native women and children. In June of 2022, the Supreme Court declared that the General Crimes Act did not prohibit Oklahoma from exercising criminal jurisdiction over crimes committed against Indian victims on tribal lands. The decision follows up on the Court's 2020 decision in McGirt, where the Court declared that the Mvskoke Reservation remains in existence. Both cases have huge implications for safety for Native women.
