In contemporary America, the quality of life for Native peoples bears scars of the traumatic phenomena spurred by Federal policies of termination and assimilation. Organized efforts are at work today to protect indigenous rights, secure cultural capital, and generate vitality through Native initiatives on behalf of Native peoples. The theme for the 2014 symposium is Thrive Nations - Resilient Peoples. Topics will stimulate renewed perspectives on the self-determination of tribal peoples and inspire innovative thought on ways to secure and sustain well-being now and in the future. All events are free and open to the public.
