Friday, November 02, 2012

How President Richard Nixon dramatically altered the Federal government’s Native American policy to support self-determination for Native American tribes and restoration of their culture will be examined Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 7 p.m. at 105 Fenton. Opening remarks will be given by Martin E. Seneca Jr, attorney and member of the Seneca Nation who is an expert in federal Indian Law.

The program, “Nixon and the American Indian: The Movement to Self-Determination,” was produced by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian. White House and Administration officials who worked with Nixon discuss the leadership, legislation and litigation that was needed to implement the policy and what it meant to the American Indian.

The program is free and open to the public.
