Why It Matters: The Native Vote in Montana
As a voting bloc, what power do Native voters have both on and off reservations? What issues do Native voters turn out for? What barriers do Native voters face? This panel addresses the history of Native voting rights and voter suppression as well as contemporary advocacy and voter engagement in Montana tribal communities. Panelists include U.S. Staff Sergeant and Crow Reservation organizer Lauri Dawn Kindness, University of Montana Professor Jason Begay, and Montana Native Vote Executive Director Marci McLean in conversation moderated by journalist and Threshold podcast producer Amy Martin.
