Event Details

We'll discuss foundations to Native research particularly focusing on research beyond the ubiquitous “Five Civilized Tribes” including important record sets, why context is important, the role of DNA in Native research, proving kinship, and best practices. Learn about foundations such as the 1887 Dawes Act, land allotments, and blood quantum to understand what these mean and how they affect research.
