The Descendants of Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes Association and the African Indians of the 5 Civilized Tribes Foundation will host a virtual conference on Saturday, November 7, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m via Zoom. This year’s conference theme is Freedmen Origins of Greenwood:  Tribal Enslavement, Sovereignty, and Citizenship. The conference is sponsored in part through a grant from the  1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission & WPX Energy. 

National and International speakers and presentations will cover the history of Black Native citizens in the formation of Tulsa’s Greenwood district. Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of the social and cultural identities of victims of enslavement by tribal citizens and the challenges faced by many of their descendants today. Presenters will address the ongoing struggle for the enforcement of the 1866 Treaty Rights.
