Expert witnesses from various professions testifying in murder cases are common sight in TV’s court melodramas. But have you ever seen a historian sworn in as an expert witness? In New Mexico and elsewhere in the West, historians are called upon to render opinion in litigation over the one commodity whose lack will be lethal to everyone: water. We will look at the three-handed fight between Indian tribes, non-Indians, and the federal government over water, and the role of historians in providing expert witness testimony by deposition and/or in court based on their research in fascinating and esoteric corners of history.
