Challenging Narratives of Erasure
In the last 50 years, Native people from many nations have begun to reassert their claims to the land. In some instances those claims are legal, challenging land use or water rights, but often these claims are more subtle and take place in school districts, local newspapers, or museums. Can you find instances where Native people in your area established a presence?
