Roots of Democracy Series
Thursday, March 25, 2021 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Native systems of governance have faced intense challenges since European explorers first landed on these shores. While America's founding fathers took inspiration from Indigenous governments, the relationship between First Nations and the U.S. Government has been defined by fundamental conflicts over sovereignty, territory, citizenship, and individual rights. 

Join the Wisconsin Academy via Zoom for a Roots of Democracy Series discussion with a panel of First Nations scholars who will explore how Indigenous governments have responded to these challenges and the obstacles to sovereignty that still remain in place. This online discussion and Q&A is open to the public with advance online registration (Zoom information is provided upon registration).
