Brothertown Indians: Fighting for Acknowledgement in the Face of Erasure

On Thursday, March 18 at 5 pm the Native American Cultural Awareness Association (NACAA) is hosting a presentation by Danielle McKinney on the Brothertown Indian Nation. 

Several hundred years ago, the Brothertown formed as a new indigenous Nation with individuals from other East Coast tribes. Danielle McKinney will discuss their unique relationship with the emerging United States Government as the “only civilized” Indians up to the present day; where the Brothertown’s national identity has been weaponized against them in their fight for Federal Acknowledgement.

This online presentation is free and open to the public. It will be held on Webex at
