North Dakota's Native American Voter Suppression: Michelle Cook and Hartman Deetz

The Supreme Court ruled in October 2018 to uphold a lower decision requiring North Dakota voters to bring proof of residential address to the polls. Many Native Americans living on rural tribal lands, which are typically without named and numbered roads, do not have residential addresses.

Michelle Cook, Navajo Nation Human Rights Commissioner and Hartman Deetz, Mashpee Wampanoag activist speak on why this kind of voter suppression is a key way that the colonizer state limits the sovereign powers of tribal nations.
