Areas covered within this course of study will be federal acknowledgment and the effects it has on business development and putting land into trust; the effects of the designation of tribal lands on the protection of sacred places; an examination of cultural rights and the rights of tribal governments; and a study of the global approach to the protection of traditional knowledge.
