Native Civic Engagement
August 20, 2020
Did you know that the majority of Native Americans did not gain the right to vote until 1970? Even though Native Americans were granted U.S. citizenship in 1924, major restrictions facing Native voters were not eliminated until the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and later amendments. Join us in a conversation with Shandiin Herrera (Diné) and Isabel Coronado (Mvskoke Creek) to discuss the continued fight for reform to ensure the right to vote is accessible to everyone.

In the United States, Native Americans experience higher suicide rates than any other racial or ethnic group. Mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellness are integral to combating this issue, and Native youth are at the forefront with solutions. Today, Native youth are creating their own community-based programs, resources and advocacy for mental health and overall wellness. Join this conversation moderated by Karis Poafpybitty (Cherokee/Kiowa) with youth panelists Jazmine Wildcat (Northern Arapaho), Marco Ovando (Shoshone-Paiute) and Shavaughna Underwood (Quinault) to learn how Native teens are addressing this issue.

As part of the museum's online series Youth in Action: Conversations about Our Future, hear from young Native activists who are propelling this conversation and addressing the tension between history, memory, and the current movements happening across America. Panelists include Brook Thompson (Yurok and Karuk), Dylan Baca (White Mountain Apache), Lina Krueck (Oglala Lakota), Julian Brave NoiseCat (Canim Lake Band Tsq'escen and Lil'Wat Nation), and Alberto Correa III (Taíno).
This program also features an introduction by Kevin Gover (Pawnee), director of the National Museum of the American Indian, and a musical performance by hip-hop artist Frank Waln (Sicangu Lakota).
