Event Overview:

This is the 1st session in the 4 part Ginanda-nisidotaadimin: Understanding American Indian History Series.

When Europeans first encountered Native people in North America, they lived in fully autonomous communities. Despite a complicated and sometimes contradictory history, the US government continually recognized the inherent sovereignty of tribal nations. This presentation will explore the evolution of tribal sovereignty. We will discuss the demographics of Native people in the US and Native nations of Minnesota. We will explore the impact and meaning of American colonialism in regards to Native people and how it shaped how the US government defined tribal sovereignty in the Constitution, treaties, early Supreme Court
decisions, and the Trust Doctrine.

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