Only a century ago, Native peoples, the original inhabitants of these lands, were conferred U.S. citizenship. With this new status, we should have had the same power as other citizens to shape America, but it took another 40 years of relentless struggle for all Native peoples to secure the right to vote.

This hard-won victory allowed our grandparents and great-grandparents to finally have a voice in decisions that directly impact our Tribal homelands and communities. Yet, despite continued attacks on our right to vote, we have elected Native leaders to represent us in Congress, passed legislation to strengthen our communities, and influenced the outcome of a presidential election.

100 years later, we still hold the power to influence decisions to protect our lands and water and uphold our Tribal sovereignty.
