Gerald Ford’s Role in Indian Self-Determination,
Part 2

Tribal College Journal
By Ryan Winn, CMN Faculty


Ryan Winn

On August 5, 1975, President Gerald Ford improved and extended the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which barred voting “discrimination against Spanish-speaking Americans, American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and Asian Americans.” As a congressman in 1965, Ford supported the initial legislation that ushered in an era of greater voting equality. As president he reinforced his belief in the spirit of the act, stating, “In the past decade, the voting rights of millions and millions of Americans have been protected and our system of government has been strengthened immeasurably.” Read more

The Three Sisters Garden: A Model of Community and Sustainable Growth

This type of companion planting is widespread among indigenous Native American farming societies


Three Sisters Garden

According to Native American legend, corn, beans, and squash are three sisters who grew and flourished together for the benefit of the community. Corn is the oldest sister. She stands tall in the center watching over her two other sisters, squash and beans. Squash is the next sister. She protects her sisters from weeds and shades the soil from the sun with her leaves, keeping it cool and moist. Beans are the third sister. She climbs through the squash and then up the corn stalks binding the three sisters together as she reaches for the sun. Read more
