Vogel Published in Law Review

Hamline School of Law Professor Emeritus Howard Vogel published his article, "Rethinking the Effect of the Abrogation of the Dakota Treaties and the Authority for the Removal of the Dakota People from Their Homeland," in the William Mitchell Law Review. This article was published as part of a symposium on the U.S. - Dakota War of 1862. In the article, Vogel argues that "[t]he 1863 Acts of Congress, seizing the land of the Dakota and forcibly removing them from that land, like the foundation of federal Indian law, ultimately rests on the cornerstone of the Doctrine of Christian Discovery--a cornerstone that is without moral or legal foundation."
