Examining racial gerrymandering, voter dilution, voter suppression, and disenfranchisement, this paper explores how Native American voters are marginalized and silenced from the voting process in the United States. Using recent legal cases and statistical data, I demonstrate the political social responses to the critical issue of Native American voting rights, and argue that Native Americans are the forgotten population of voters being left out of discussions about voting rights.
