"Protecting Indian Water Rights Under Drought Conditions," National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) Fall Conference, October 21.

With unprecedented drought conditions in California and the Western United States, the right to use and access water has never been more critical. In this session will look at the drought conditions and expectations and a few examples of what tribes are doing now and what can be done going forward to protect and assert tribal water rights. After a general overview of water rights and drought issues, there will be presentations on water issues in Northern California and the litigation efforts in Southern California to protect tribal rights to ground water under the Winters doctrine.
