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!
Call for Presenters
We’re looking for session proposals from those who are working to understand and address the impacts of boarding school trauma in Indian Country. Topics to be covered:
• Truth in History — the facts about U.S. Indian Boarding Schools
• Oral Histories — sharing our stories and honoring our memories
• Impacts — understanding and confronting inter-generational trauma
• Healing — transcending the pain and honoring our survivance and Indigenous lifeways
Check out the session proposal guidelines on our website for more information. Session Proposals are due by July 31, 2019.
