After 100 Years
Native Women Still Face Barriers Voting as First Americans
On Line Discussion
The 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote with the 19th Amendment will be marked this year, but the amendment did not grant all women the right to vote. Women of color, including Native American women, were excluded from the protections of the 19th Amendment.
The panel, featuring all Native American women, will discuss how Native peoples were denied the right to citizenship and voting rights, and how the legacies of these injustices are still impacting Native communities today.
The webinar is part of the “Lifting Voices from the Shadows” oral history project, funded by the National Park Foundation and in partnership with the Native American Cultural Center at Colorado State University, the Northern Arapaho Tribe and the National Heritage Areas Program.
