Event Overview:

This is the 3rd session in the 4 part Ginanda-nisidotaadimin: Understanding American Indian History Series.

At the heart of US government policy towards Native people in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century was a deal. While the details varied over time and in different policies, the underlying theme was this: give up your language, culture, and sovereignty and you will gain full and equal access to the benefits of being a white American. While some individual Native people were able to better themselves, for the vast majority of Native people this “deal” was a lie. Native people were faced with the destruction of their traditions while at the same time were pushed into deeper poverty. This presentation will explore how federal, state, and local governments worked (sometimes in opposition) to undermine tribal sovereignty and culture and impoverish Native people.

Additional sessions – Each session is $20 (attend 1 or attend all 4):
