Native Learning Center Webinar on Indian Land Issues

Indian Land Issues

This course will help land and property owners in understanding the difference in Indian Restricted Fee Land, Tribally Owned Lands, and Trust land, Tribally Owned Land, owned in what is known as Tenancy in Common.  It will cover the history of how the U.S. Government designated “Indian Lands” and what special rules and laws govern Indian Lands. From jurisdiction to private ownership, any lands that are designated as “Indian” carry a special status. It is important to know what type of property one owns for many reasons, including estate planning or financial planning.    

Training Objectives:
·         Explain the intricacies of deeds and titles to land
·         What are the types of land and real property that Indians can own
·         The special considerations Indians have when it comes to owning land and real property

Not Alone

Sunday, November 12, 2017
3224 Locust Street
1:00 pm

Driven by a desire to understand why her best friend killed herself at 16, co-director Jacqueline Monetta — herself a recent high-school grad — gets suffering teens to share their struggles with mental illness and suicide attempts. Through Monetta’s intimate one-on-one interviews, viewers learn about depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide attempts, and resources for getting help and treating mental illness. The film serves as an excellent educational tool: helping teens recognize the warning signs of depression among their peers, providing warnings about social media and its potentially deleterious effects, suggesting outlets for help, destigmatizing mental illness, and giving teen viewers the clear sense that they are not alone.
