Listen to my interview with Rebecca Nagle from This Land Podcast.
The Supreme Court will rule in the Carpenter v Murphy case soon. This case has ramifications for the tribes in Oklahoma and potentially across the United States. Rebecca Nagle's new podcast, This Land, tells the story of this case and the history leading up to this monumental decision. She tells the story in an intriguing and compelling manner that will have you craving the next episode.
From Crooked Media:
An 1839 assassination of a Cherokee leader and a 1999 murder case – two crimes nearly two centuries apart provide the backbone to an upcoming 2019 Supreme Court decision that will determine the fate of five tribes and nearly half the land in Oklahoma.
Patrick Murphy was convicted of murder by the state of Oklahoma in 2000. But defense attorneys soon discovered that his conviction may have been based on a lie. Hosted by Rebecca Nagle, an Oklahoma journalist and citizen of the Cherokee Nation, this podcast will provide an in depth look at how a cut and dry murder case opened an investigation into half the land in Oklahoma and the treaty rights of five tribes. Follow along to find out what’s at stake, the Trump administration’s involvement, the larger right wing attack on tribal sovereignty and how one unique case could result in the largest restoration of tribal land in US history.
