Theme: Indigenous Movement: Empowering Generations for Progressive Revitalizataion
Beginning with relocation and assimilation practices of the 1800’s, the culture and lifestyle of Native people has been impacted significantly by the historical and modern day transgressions of the U.S. government. Recently, tribal and community leaders have demonstrated self-determination by taking action against racial discrimination and other social injustice issues such as violence against women, environmental policy, poverty, and drug abuse. While preserving cultural traditions, grassroots efforts and community advocates have established an Indigenous movement to raise awareness, create change, maintain sovereignty, and revitalize tribal communities through progressive action and economic progress. Through various forms of art and scholarly activity, a new generation of leaders has emerged, creating and sustaining positive change within our tribal communities.
