Using discussion questions developed by author and Lewis and Clark Law Professor Robert J. Miller, trace the Doctrine of Discovery to its European roots, understand how "Manifest Destiny" grew out of the elements of the doctrine and explore the present-day effect of the Doctrine of Discovery upon both American Indians and Indian- and tribal-owned land.
