Reclaiming Native Truth to Change the Narrative

Session Type(s): Panel

Room: 118A

Data on current attitudes toward Native communities is almost non-existent. Reclaiming Native Truth was a two-year project that collected data, expert insights, and created a collaborative space which engaged grassroots, tribal and community leaders about what people think about Native communities and issues. Changing public perceptions is fundamental to creating a new narrative to advance social and policy change for racial justice and the achievement of tribal sovereignty. The workshop will examine the results of the report and explore the impact on building racial justice movements with strong ties to Native Nations and communities.
