Johnson v. M'Intosh: Reflections on the 200th Anniversary of a Foundational Case on Property Law and Indigenous Rights in the United States
Johnson v. M'Intosh, decided in 1823, dealt with so-called acquisition by discovery and conquest and the need to choose between competing claims to property ownership from divergent chains of title, consequently affecting the rights of indigenous peoples and the rules governing transfer of property in the early days of the United States. It remains a controversial and influential decision, shaping the legal framework around indigenous land rights to this day. Join the Tribal Law & Economics Program and its panel of experts for a discussion of the case.
