News Profile of Lyda Conley, 1st Native Woman to Argue before SCOTUS

Here is “Lyda Conley and the battle for Wyandot recognition.”

“Thank you, TurtleTalk, for this story.  Lyda Conley is an inspiration to all of us who practice in the field.  Oftentimes, I have been identified as the first native woman to argue in the Supreme Court, wrongly so as it turns out.  For one, I’m proud to stand behind Lyda in second, third, or whatever place it puts me.  Let the record stand corrected.”  Arlinda Locklear

We at Turtle Talk have always thought of Arlinda as the first in the modern era. 🙂
