The New York Times Discusses Name Change of Hastings Law School Because of Round Valley Indian Tribes

The New York Times Published 10.27.21

"Now, both the law school and its critics agree that Mr. Hastings “bears significant responsibility” for the massacres, in the words of the Hastings inquiry, but they disagree on what to do about it, including the question of whether the school should retain its name.

At a time when institutions across the country are re-examining their history, Native leaders in California say a broad reckoning over the treatment of American Indians is overdue. The longstanding notion that they died as an accidental consequence of Western settlement, of disease and displacement, they argue, needs to be revised with acknowledgment of the purposeful killing campaigns."

Yuki Committee Meets with Hastings Law School

Yuki Committee Tours Hastings Law School in San Francisco

RVIT's Tribal Council sanctioned a committee comprised of Yuki tribal members whom, in August, toured the Hastings Law School campus in San Francisco hosted gratuitous by Chancellor and Dean, David Faigman, of Hastings.

This effort is one of many most recent by Hastings Law School as a response to the historical genocidal expeditions by its name's sake, Serranus Hastings, who promoted and financed the murderous expeditions over 150 years ago.

Hastings lead the efforts against the Yuki people and multiple other regional tribes, profiting greatly from the displacement of the Indigenous people in northern California. Today, the Yuki are federally recognized along with the Wailacki, Nomlacki, Pitriver, Concow, and Pomo in a confederation respectively known as Round Valley Indian Tribes who presently reside on the Round Valley Indian Reservation in Covelo, California.

Hastings initiated the reconciliation effort with RVIT and the Yuki people in most recent times and are actively working to enhance their relationship with the tribe in hopes of inspiring joint ventures, partnerships, and friendship with the tribe.
