Indigenous Ways of Knowing Conference
Date: November 18, 2008
The theme of this year’s conference is Sovereignty, Culture and Generations Rising.
Each year, conference planners seek to cross conventional academic disciplines in order better to represent Indigenous Ways of Knowing. Panels will be formed from presentation abstracts that cover law, political science, history, art, human development, individual and community health, ecology & environmental science with particular emphasis upon continuation and development of innovative systems and structures that most effectively empower Indigenous Communities. Each panel will be a combination of traditional and academic presentations. Conference attendees will participate in small group discussions alongside conference presenters to catalyze practical application of the concepts presented.
The two-day conference, held in Templeton Campus Center, is free for Lewis & Clark faculty, staff, and students; $150 for the general public. Register online.
