AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics & Policy
A new tool will help visitors to Washington, D.C., discover the historic and contemporary landmarks of those who inhabited the city’s land before its development as the nation’s capital. “Guide to Indigenous D.C.” is a free mobile app developed by AT&T CIPP in collaboration with the American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association.
Kevin Gover, the director of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, discussed his career and problems with the way Native American history is taught at a lecture in late April. His presentation was the keynote lecture of the Indigenous America University Seminar, a programming initiative led by Dr. Elizbeth Rule, assistant director for the AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics & Policy (AT&T CIPP).
The panel featured U.S. Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Deb Haaland (D-N.M.) and was titled “More Than a Vote” and was sponsored by the GW Graduate School of Political Management in collaboration with the School of Media and Public Affairs and the AT&T Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy. The panel also included Lara Brown, director of GSPM.
