God Bless America

One of my dear friends forwarded the following description of the origin of the song, "God Bless America." Since it is Constitution Day, I thought it appropriate to share it for all of you who are history, song, and/or Hollywood buffs...or just simply patriotic Americans who get a lump in your throat when you hear the song.

Law Students Learn Intricacies of Federal Indian Law

Professor Joseph Wiseman teaches Federal Indian Law at Empire Law School.

There are over one hundred federally recognized Indian tribes in California, ranging from the Yurok tribe on the north coast to the Fort Yuma Quechan tribe on the border of Arizona and Mexico. Each tribe is a sovereign “nation within a nation” with the inherent power to regulate its internal affairs generally free from state intrusion. Indian tribes have a rich historical legacy, which, unfortunately, is scarred by repeated attempts to eradicate their presence and diminish their historical land base.
