2013 Symposium on the American Indian
April 8 - 13, 2013
Northeastern State University, Tahlequah
The theme of the 41st Annual Symposium on the American Indian is Technology Future, Technology Past: A Woven Link. Indigenous societies have endured as technological innovations have effected massive cultural change and the spiritual paths taken are interwoven as living links between the past and the future. The rapid acceleration of computer engineering is in some ways leading us into a complex realm of little understood ecosystems through which we must, sometimes blindly, navigate. The Native universe must consider its trust relations with technology. The symposium will address the intellectual, spiritual, and practical lives of Indigenous peoples. All events are free and open to the public.
