After long discussions over what freedoms can look like, we wanted to trace paths of Native Americans to see if these people had their freedoms before and after colonization.
On this website we have placed a map that goes through the Cherokee and Iroquois nations ways of living before and after colonization in present day America.
Check out the Testimony tab, which goes over present debates and issues with Native American representation in today's society.

#BlackLivesMatter is a hashtag that started the Black Lives Matter movement that spanned the world and called for the end to brutality towards black people at the hands of law enforcement. This hashtag is a prime example of how social media encourages freedom and the movement of ideas. By analyzing the origins of free speech, and social media as well as the Black Lives Matter movement, we hope to exemplify the power that social media has on freedom and movement.
