“Lindsay is one our college’s greatest champions for service and outreach,” said OU College of Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “He applies a laser-focus to creating opportunities for our students to gain a greater understanding of the law and of the human condition. He has an irrepressible desire to help others, and he routinely fosters meaningful relationships within the university, our state and nation and global communities along the way. His model of service through leadership is a great asset to OU and to our college.”

Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2004-06) and the American Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2004-07). From 2010 to 2012, he was a member of the U.S Department of State Advisory Committee on International Law. In 2014, he served as advisor on indigenous peoples law to the Chair of the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. He has spoken widely on international and comparative indigenous peoples law issues in the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
