Religious Freedom

Many people are proud that the United States has, from the very beginning, valued religious freedom. This freedom includes choosing your God, your church, and your own personal level of devotion, free from consequences of these specific religious choices. People have actually been jailed for religious offenses.

The history of Indigenous political activism and resistance dates back to the earliest days of contact between Tribal peoples and the European explorers and settlers, (Wilkins, 2011) , 232). The following is a list of some of the earliest recorded movements.

  • Delaware Prophet (1760-1763)
  • Shawnee Prophet (1805-1811)
  • the Winnebage Prophet (1830)
  • the Ghost Dance Movement (1890)
