Voting In Native Country: Hurdles at Every Turn
There are 11 reservations and Indian communities in Minnesota but only one
reservation has an on-site place to vote. What's going n? This seminar will navigate the hurdles which deter indigenous citizens, our native sisters and brothers, from voting.
Join us as we explore the voting barriers faced by on-reservation Native Americans and seek to understand the importance of advancing Native voting rights across Indian Country in the US and Minnesota.
