“Living Sovereignty”

August 1 - September 30

Simply put, “sovereignty” is a group’s right to self-rule. As independent nations existing for generations before European and American settlement, America’s Indigenous peoples embodied sovereignty. Throughout the history of interactions between the United States government and Indigenous nations and tribes, maintaining self-government has been a challenge that continues today. Living Sovereignty, a traveling exhibit curated by the Watkins Museum in Lawrence, Kansas, explores the histories of the tribal peoples who populated Kansas and the ways they found to express their sovereignty and maintain their cultural identity.
