Indigenous People's land tenure history in the United States is complex and inconsistent. Geographer Irme Sutton refers to US-based Indigenous People's land tenure history as more of a political geography as opposed to what one might think when referring to Indigenous People's traditional homelands. Native Land Tenure in the US is a legal and political system forced onto Indigenous People's that identifies and separates ownership of land and determines access to land use on Indigenous People's traditional homelands. This historical oppression has been partially enabled by the concealment and mishandling of Native Land Data and remains an impediment to Native Sovereignty. Today, GIS-based analysis empowers Native Land researchers to piece the puzzle together. This session will address key questions: What does that history tell since the forced land tenure system began, where are we now, where are we going, who gets to present that story, and how?
