Indian Reserved Water Rights Claims Symposium

Since 1991, the Native American Rights Fund and the Western States Water Council have sponsored a biennial symposium to discuss the settlement of Indian reserved water rights claims.

August 25-27, 2015
Peppermill Hotel and Casino
Reno, Nevada

The Western States Water Council and Native American Rights Fund will cosponsor a symposium on the settlement of Indian reserved water rights claims on August 25-27, 2015. The meetings will be held at the Peppermill Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada. A number of topics will be addressed by experts and participants regarding completed and ongoing negotiated settlements.

We expect another excellent conference. The primary meeting format consists of panel discussions with presenters who have been involved in negotiated settlements representing tribal, state, local, and federal governments, interest groups, congressional staff, and others. The meeting schedule provides opportunities for informal interchange and cultural enlightenment. Participant feedback from the meetings has been very positive. Continuing Legal Education Credit will be available for lawyers who attend.

Sponsors are welcome and encouraged to contact Tony Willardson, WSWC Executive Director, or John Echohawk, NARF Executive Director.
