NY Times op/ed piece on Quileute Tribe and "Twilight"

Professor Angela Riley from UCLA Law School published an op/ed article in today’s New York Times about the impact of the Twilight movie phenomenon on the Quileute Nation and its one square mile reservation in remote La Push, Washington.

Riley writes: “To millions of “Twilight” fans, the Quileute are Indians whose (fictional) ancient treaty transforms young males of the tribe into vampire-fighting wolves. To the nearly 700 remaining Quileute Indians, “Twilight” is the reason they are suddenly drawing extraordinary attention from the outside world.”
