Position 2: This position will research and document raw data identifying various land ownership patterns of tribal lands by reservation. The research will entail the review of historic documents, maps and current records.

The summer internships are full-time positions over the course of 10-12 weeks (400 hours). Beginning and ending dates are negotiable.
