Native American KU students want a say in criminal cases

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Some Native American students at the University of Kansas want a say in criminal cases involving vandalism and thefts at the “Native Hosts” art exhibit.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that members of the First Nations Student Association have asked the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office to include them in processing of the criminal cases.

Doctoral student D’Arlyn Bell says the crimes made Native American students feel “targeted.” Both crimes happened in September.

Two students are charged in the thefts. No charges have been filed in the vandalism.
