Where Did We Come From? Our Origin Story explores how the laws and values of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy were integral in the writing of the Constitution, yet Native Americans' cultural and religious traditions, and practices were outlawed until 1978. How people gather, express their cultural identities, and practice community continues to be an issue of contention in modern America. We examine how these issues manifest at the many levels of government and how we can approach these issues of religious and cultural freedoms with an equity lens with experts including Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, Author of Sisters in Spirit: Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influences on Early American Feminists, Prairie Rose Seminole, Policy Analyst, and Sabina Mohyuddin, Executive Director for the American Muslim Advisory Council.
