Indian Rights Advocate to Receive Tucker Award

The Tucker Foundation is hosting a luncheon this Friday to honor Trudell Guerue ’74, a civil rights lawyer and minority advocate. In the 1980s, Guerue did important work to ensure Indian tribal governments enforced basic civil rights.

Guerue’s lawfirm, the Minneapolis-based Legal Rights Center, has a rather interesting perspective on the law: “it is an instrument of the dominant society’s oppression of the different and the less powerful.”
