Throughout the history of the Americas, Indigenous resistance to colonial governments has transformed and continues to push the bounds of what we think of as Democratic institutions. Nonetheless, Indigenous Peoples across the hemisphere face a lack of representation in national governments and significant impediments to voting rights and other state-sanctioned forms of political participation, limiting their ability to enact legislation and societal change for the preservation of Indigenous lands, languages, and cultures. This panel gathers scholars from across the Americas for a dialogue on historical, contemporary, and future worlds to be built by indigenizing systems of power, place, and politics. Speakers: Sally Roesch Wagner (author of Sisters in Spirit: Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influence on Early American Feminists), Jorge D’Orcy, Sra. Jimena Cruz MamaniSebastian Granda Henao , Kristina Lucero.
