Join us as we come together from tribal nations all over Turtle Island for a national discussion on boarding school truth, justice and healing.

Our 2nd Annual Conference – Honoring Native Survivance will be hosted by the Tulalip Tribes and held November 19-21, 2019, in Tulalip, Washington (near Seattle).

We hope to continue the forward momentum, healing and great conversations we started last year in Carlisle and see boarding school survivors and descendants, tribal leaders and policymakers, advocates and allies, and scholars and healers at the conference in Tulalip this fall!
