DISCOVERY presented by UW Law

Society & Culture

Yakama Nation v. Klickitat County involves a dispute that dates back 150 years and encompasses issues central to Tribal sovereignty in Washington state. Revolving around the status of tract of land on the Yakama Reservation's southern boundary, the case calls in to play a legal framework that has been a pillar of U.S. Indian law for centuries. When you throw ​in a SCOTUS ruling with major potential implications, the conversation gets even more complicated. On a new episode of DISCOVERY, attorney Ethan Jones joins UW Law to discuss current issues, their history and potential outcomes as the case makes its way through the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
