    In 1868, the United States negotiated eight treaties with tribal nations, including the Arapaho, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Cherokee, Crow, Navajo, Shoshone, Sioux, and Ute. These were the last treaties to be ratified before the end of treaty making in 1871. On the 150-year anniversary of these treaties, this panel will examine not only their historical underpinnings, but also the real rights that continue to flow from these treaties and that are the subject of discussion, negotiation, and litigation today.
