|Fall 2008 Sabbatical|
During my fall 2008 sabbatical, I did research on the growing system of tribal courts, a subject of increasing importance in Indian Country. I took classes in the Tribal Legal Systems Education Law Program at UCLA. This series of courses presented in cooperation with UCLA Native Nations Law and Policy Center, and the Tribal Law and Policy Institute of Project Peacemaker. I taught a Hybrid class at SDSU and participated in training thru the National Indian Justice Center on tribal courts and tribal law. I will be teaching a half unit course Fall - October 3, 2009:
Tribal Courts in Southern California: Facts, Fiction and Function
This workshop will introduce information about the policies and function of the new Inter–Tribal Court used by the eighteen tribes in San Diego County. The tribes are unique both in their historical relationship to the region and in their contemporary exercise of tribal sovereignty and self-determination. This workshop will help students understand the government-to-government relationships tribes have with state and federal governments, with a special emphasis on the role of the court.

|During My SABBATICAL of Spring 2002|
During my Spring 2002 sabbatical I worked in four areas: Did research on the topic of mixed tribal identity, researched other American Indian Studies departments, trained for an on-line class, participate in creative activities involving the Southern California Tribal Digital Village project and the California Indian Conference. This research included the following activities:
A. Mixed tribal identity: I plan to travel to several Indian reservations, two tribal community colleges and three to five four-year institutions to conduct interviews. I will tape record or videotape five to ten interviews with college students and faculty as well as tribal members. The interviews will focus on the issue of tribal identity as it relates to Indians of mixed heritage – both racial and tribal. This issue involves several important political and legal implications for American Indians today. The results of this research will be included in future courses such as AMS/MCS 200 Race, Class and Ethnic Relations and my AIS American Indians Today class.
B. Preparation and transfer requirements: Relying on interviews with students and faculty as well as observing classes and participating in activities, I will study the American Indian Studies programs at four-year institutions with the aim of determining how to best prepare Palomar students who transfer into these programs. The objective here is to discover whether or not the content of our curriculum and certificate program meets the needs of students.
C. Southern California tribal Digital Village. As a member of the core implementation team, I will participate in building programs using technology and technological knowledge which will benefit local Indian Reservations. This will require my collaboration with staff from UCSD, SDSU, and DQU, as well as tribal communities.
D. Preparation and training for and On-line Class. I took the three Blackboard classes taught by Academic Technology in April 2002 and prepared AIS 125 to be taught on-line in Fall 2002.
E. California Indian Conference. The AIS department will host the CIC Conference at Palomar College, October 10, 11 & 12. I will serve on the planning committee for this event.
