Event: Little Colorado River: Failure of the Settlement & The Triumph of Social Media

Speaker:  Stanley Pollack, Assistant Attorney General, Water Rights Unit, Navajo Nation Department of Justice

The rejection of the Little Colorado River settlement marks the first time that an Indian water rights settlement was rejected by a tribal council while the settlement was pending before Congress.  The settlement was rejected largely out of the misplaced perception that it would benefit mining and power interests, a view that was fostered by a coalition of environmental groups who utilized social media to spread misconceptions about the settlement.  What were the lessons learned from this experience?
