Creating an Indian Law Commission

Listen
AIR DATE: March 4, 2011

Late last year President Obama signed off on the Tribal Law and Order Act. It in turn creates a commission to look at legal issues on tribal lands. Ted Quasula from Henderson is heading up the commission. He's Haulapai. And his job is to figure out how to get the government to help tribes across the country deal with crimes on reservations as well as help with the lack of facilities to incarcerate people on the reservations.

GUEST
Ted Quasula, member, Hualapai Tribe in northern Arizona; GM, Grand Canyon Skywalk on the Hualapai Indian Reservation; and Chair, Nevada Indian Commission
