Northeastern State University

The 39th Annual Symposium, "Hands Across Nations: Smart Legacies - Strong Spirits", is built around traditional knowledge and the community spirit that cultivates concepts of social entrepreneurship and cultural stewardship. Discussions will employ an interdisciplinary and humanities-based approach to examining contemporary issues such as sovereignty in the 21st century, environmental issues within tribal contexts, Native language revitalization, and the persistence of indigenous peoples within the global society.
