Event Title

Freedom of Religion and Indigenous Peoples

Description

This workshop builds upon the first workshop, and focuses on how the political guarantees of religious freedom have historically been denied to American Indians in the US and Canada, and how these denials continue to have negative outcomes in Native communities today, not only in terms of religion per se, but also in terms of health, human rights, and general well-being. The presentation of this perspective will be followed by discussion, small group exercise, and concluding recommendations.
