Issue Brief: African Americans and Native Americans

Keiles, Joshua; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This issue brief explores the largely unknown connection between African Americans and Native Americans in the United States. It focuses on the case of the Cherokee Freedmen, descended from former freed slaves, who lost their citizenship to the Cherokee nation after a new law was passed in 2007.
