H@H: Native American Identity, Sovereignty, & Tribal Enrollment: Understanding the History of Tribal Membership and the Contemporary Impact on Dating


What is tribal enrollment and how did it become a key part of a Native American Identity? This talk discusses the history behind the creation of tribal enrollment policies and how it relates to being Native American in today’s world. Drawing on interviews conducted with Southwest Native American women, specifically Pueblo women, this presentation will connect tribal membership with women’s experiences navigating dating, marriage, and family planning.
