Hi, I’m Mia White Bull and I’m Oglala Lakota
And now here’s your Native American Heritage Month fact of the day:
While the Fourteenth Amendment defines as citizens any persons born in the U.S., the government specifically interpreted the law so it didn’t apply to Native people.The Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 was signed into law by President Calvin Coolidge. It was enacted partially in recognition of the thousands of Native Americans who served in the armed forces during World War I. The right to vote in all 50 states wasn’t granted until 1962. The last state to fully guarantee voting rights for Native people was Utah
