The American Indian Vote

Date and Time: May 13, 2023

Location: Mid-America All-Indian Museum, 650 N Seneca St, Wichita
(view on google maps)

Native peoples were awarded citizenship in 1924, but the struggle for voting rights stretched on much longer and remains an issue today. Yes, American Indians and Alaska Natives have the right to vote just as all other U.S. citizens do today. However, they have more responsibility in that they can vote in presidential, congressional, state, local, AND tribal elections, if eligible.
Join Mid-America All-Indian Museum for a closer look at the history of the American Indian vote and the Native peopls that make up our local, state, and federal government.

It's often overlooked that self-government in America was practiced by American Indians long before the formation of the United States government. Still, American Indians were denied the right to be U.S. citizens when the country ratified its Constitution in 1788 from stolen lands. Many American Indian people felt citizenship was thrust upon them without consent.

Join the Mid-America All-Indian Museum for a closer look at the history of the American Indian vote and the Native peoples that make up our local, state, and federal government today.

This exhibit is part of "Voice and Votes," a statewide initiative exploring the history of American Democracy. For exhibition and event details, contact Mid-America All-Indian Museum directly.
