Empowering the World War II Native American Veteran: Postwar Civil Rights.
Franco, Jere
WICAZO SA Review, v9 n1 p32-37 Spr 1993
"Promised" by the Dawes Act of 1887, U.S. citizenship was finally granted to all Native Americans in 1924 and reaffirmed in 1940 as World War II and military service loomed. Nevertheless, six states prevented Indians from voting until the 1950s. Since then, Indian political participation and voting power have grown, particularly in some western states. (SV)
