DEADLINE EXTENDED! - 57th WLA Conference
The Western Literature Association is excited to announce that our 2023 conference will be held at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel & Casino, situated near Pocatello, Idaho, on the Fort Hall Reservation, home of the Shoshone and Bannock Tribes. The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes live on the largest land base reservation in the state of Idaho and are one of the five Tribes of Idaho. They are well known for their museum-quality beading and brain-tanned hides, for being the Home of Indian Relays (traditional horse races), and for being designated as the first Purple Heart Reservation in the nation. The 2023 Distinguished Achievement Award Winner, Mark Trahant, the influential editor at Indian Country Today, is also an enrolled member of the Tribes.
