Jan. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- An online graduate course from Montana State University  traces the history of Indian law from the Constitution to present day. What are the legal rights of the modern day Indian? What are the legal rights of “domestic dependent nations (tribes)”? This is a course with answers to those questions and more.

The course begins online Jan. 9 and is open to anyone with a bachelor's degree. Students who complete the course may be able to transfer the credits into Montana State University's online graduate certificate in Native American Studies.

The instructor is William Eggers III. Eggers is a former First Assistant U.S. Attorney, Special Deputy Attorney General, Montana State Representative, and tribal judge. Eggers has been an adjunct instructor at Little Big Horn College and at Rocky Mountain College. He is listed in Who’s Who in American Law and Who’s Who in the World. Eggers is a Flemming Fellow and a Crow tribal member. He is a trial lawyer in private practice with an emphasis on general civil litigation.

Indian law comprises of a collection of Supreme Court decisions, federal laws and policies which are completely separate and distinguishable from non-Indian Federal/ state laws and policies. Indian laws and policies evolved out of legal fictions, reactions to historical events, fear, discrimination, the impact of Manifest Destiny, greed and power politics.

Treaties, termination, assimilation, self determination, criminal prosecution, water rights, health services, development of natural resources and tribal businesses continue to be hot topics for contemporary Indians, tribes and non-Indian supporters and competitors.
