The theme for the 40th Annual Symposium on the American Indian, The Journey of Sovereign Nations: Self-determination and Human Rights, will reflect back on the past four decades of development and change for American Indian tribes. From the 1970s emphasis on self-determination, revitalization of tribal governments, and Indian activism, to the more recent Cobell trust funds settlement and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, American Indians have been on the move as advocates for justice, human rights, and reparation. The journey continues with an eye on the well-being of future generations. All events are free and open to the public.
