I'm putting together a timeline for an article that I'm working on. Please email me with suggestions.

1887 - Dawes Severalty Act. "By 1932, the sale of both unclaimed land and allotted acreage resulted in the loss of two-thirds of the 138 million acres that Native Americans had held prior to the Dawes Act." https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/june-02/

1924-06-02 - Indian Citizenship Act. "On June 2, 1924, Congress enacted the Indian Citizenship Act, which granted citizenship to all Native Americans born in the U.S. The right to vote, however, was governed by state law; until 1957, some states barred Native Americans from voting." https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/june-02/
