Clinton Quoted in ABA Journal

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Foundation Professor of Law Robert N. Clinton was quoted in an article for the January 2015 issue of the ABA Journal titled “100 Years of Law.”

The article addressed the use of eagle feathers for religious ceremonies, restrictions placed by the government according to the Bald and Gold Eagle Protection Act and the subsequent difficulties in legally obtaining eagle parts. In past cases, these elements together have been seen as violations to the First Amendment’s free exercise clause and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Clinton discussed how such cases have helped show favor to Indian religious rights as well as the issue of Indians who are not members of federally recognized tribes. According to the Bald and Gold Eagle Protection Act, there are exceptions for Indian tribes to use eagle parts for religious purposes. This also brings up the issue of intertribal marriage and the blood quantum requirements that prevent some people from joining tribes.
