The Five Tribes Story Conference is a multi-disciplinary conference designed to merge practice and theory in interpretation of folklore, oral tradition, scholarship, and literature of the Choctaw, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Cherokee, and Chickasaw tribes. The conference will bring together tribal participants in the fields of history, ethnology, performance, and literature to discuss how each discipline informs the other. Sessions and panels dedicated to specific topics will engage participants in an open and interactive format.
