conquest by law,” the discovery of America dispossessed Indigenous Peoples of
their lands. The “Discovery Doctrine” ripened into law under the landmark
Supreme Court case Johnson v. M'Intosh (1823). Chief Justice John Marshall
ruled that the “discovering” European nations (and later the United States) held
