Headlining the Living Earth Festival's Indian Summer Showcase concert, Ozomatli, the celebrated band from Los Angeles, is a two-time Grammy award-winning group. Their music is an urban-Latin-and-beyond collision of hip-hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, and then some. This concert was webcast from the Potomac Atrium of the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC on July 20, 2013. Due to technical problems with the recorded video, only...

Since the first court decision to articulate Native American law back in 1823, our nation’s courts have repeatedly invoked historical "facts" as a basis for fashioning judicial doctrines that have been prejudicial and harmful to Native Americans. This important symposium reveals that many of our modern Native law doctrines are based in fiction, not fact. Join us as we explore the historical foundations of key court decisions impacting Native Americans. Speakers include Stuart...

Blood quantum—originating from archaic notions of biological race and still codified in contemporary policy—remains one of the most important factors in determining tribal citizenship, access to services, and community recognition. This concept, however, is not without debate and contestation. This symposium features Native scholars who...
