DISCUSSION: “Negotiating Homelands and Sovereignty in Indiana Territory”

As part of the Indiana University 2017 Themester, “Diversity • Difference • Otherness,” the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology will host a public panel discussion exploring the intersections between difference, place, Indigenous identities, and tribal sovereignty in Indiana, past and present. “Negotiating Homelands and Sovereignty in Indiana Territory” will bring together tribal scholars, historians, and anthropologists to discuss different perspectives on how “otherness” and sovereign identities of tribes for whom Indiana Territory is considered homeland have been constructed, negotiated, and deconstructed in the wake of colonial expansion. Expert panelists will address the central question, “How have Native Americans continued to be considered “outsiders” in their ancestral tribal homelands?” Following panel presentations, there will be a moderated discussion, time for questions from the audience, and a reception with refreshments.
