November 16 | 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. EST | Virtual Program | Free. Registration required. 

Indiana’s constitution declares “that all people are created equal.” Though this revolutionary idea is a foundational principle of our state, it is marred by a myriad of contradictions. This ongoing series of interdisciplinary conversations examines our collective definition of equality at key moments in Indiana’s history to better understand who is considered a citizen, who gets a seat at the table, and who maintains power in our society. 

For the first conversation of Equal: A Work in Progress we will discuss the complexities of equality through the lens of indigeneity. Starting around the time of forced removal of the Miami and Potawatomi, learn about the inequalities in citizenship through race, land, culture, and language. 

Featuring: 

Alex Wesaw, Tribal Council Member of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi
Diane Hunter, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma
John Bickers, Miami Tribe of Oklahoma citizen and scholar and doctoral candidate in early American history
