By the 1920s, it was clear to almost everyone that assimilation policies had resulted in Native communities being some of the poorest in the United States. Today, while progress has been uneven among reservations and Native people still suffer from some of the highest rates of poverty, incarceration, and suicide in the US, reservation communities have been transformed in the past 100 years. This presentation will explore how Native people worked to shape policy changes such as the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, the Indian Self-Determination Act of 1975, and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988 and then worked to use these policies to build stronger reservation communities.

Instructor: Erik Martin Redix (Misko-anang) is Eagle clan from the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Reservation in Wisconsin. He is the Anishinaabe Language Director at Oshki Ogimaag Community School in Grand Portage. He is the author of The Murder of Joe White: Ojibwe Leadership and Colonialism in Wisconsin (Michigan State University Press, 2014).
