Then and Now: American Indian Representation in Missouri

With over 30,000 residents identifying with American Indian tribal affiliations, Missouri is enriched by tribal diversity. Using data from the US Census Bureau and other nationally recognized sources, this presentation focuses on where the current American Indian population is living within Missouri. It explores land and water rights, tribal preservation efforts, representation vs. misrepresentations, and indigeneity among local Missourians. Audience members will leave with a greater understanding of the American Indian people and the culture which surrounds them.

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required. Space is limited.
