Anishinaabe Way: The Inherent Right of Sovereignty, Part 1

In Part I of the six part series, "The Inherent Right of Sovereignty, in the Words and Experiences of Anishinaabe People," we are introduced to Professor Jill Doerfler, the Head of the American Indian Studies Department at UMD. She explains the inherent right of sovereignty from both current and historical perspectives and shares the goals of The Tribal Sovereignty Institute, a new community-based research and education initiative at UMD.

We also meet April (Clearwater-Day) McCormick, the Roads and Realty Manager of the Grand Portage Reservation. She talks about her experience as a graduate of UMD's Master of Tribal Administration and Governance program and shares her insights about the uniqueness of tribal sovereignty as it applies to her current work, as well as her former position as Secretary-Treasurer of the Grand Portage Reservation, which she held from 2011-2014.
