Dr. Elizabeth Rule will present a “Guide to Indigenous DC”, a digital map and mobile app featuring sites of importance to Native peoples across the Nation’s capital. She will also share from her affiliated manuscript, Indigenous DC: Native Peoples and the Nation’s Capital. Rule’s research emphasizes Indigenous peoples’ contributions to Washington, DC. She highlights how historical and contemporary federal tribal policy developed in the city and acknowledges the peoples whose homelands the District was built upon. Together, the map, app and her book showcase empowering stories of how Washington, DC is a place of tribal history, gathering and advocacy with a long, rich history.
Dr. Elizabeth Rule is Assistant Professor of Critical Race, Gender and Culture Studies at American University. She is an enrolled citizen of the Chickasaw Nation.
