Giving Thanks: Myths & Realities of American Indians



Location: virtual

During this time of year, many Americans partake in traditions that involve preconceptions and idealized versions of our relationship with American Indians. Yet current tribal members continue to deal with a reality that is connected to the past, and the impact involving many rights and representations in the U.S. today. 

Please join us for this session, as we discuss current issues that impact the rights and life outcomes of Indigenous Americans. This presentation will include misconceptions, intergroup relationships, issues relating to representation, voting rights, and health outcomes. Additionally, we will discuss the dynamics and effects of tribal sovereignty and portrayal and use of mascots. 

Presented by the Student Engagement Team (SET) which is comprised of faculty, staff, and students with special presenter, John Low, PhD.
