The Native American Literature Symposium is the leading Native Studies
conference, a Native-run event, at a Native venue. Scheduled to appear is
Michelle St. John and "The Scrubbing Project."

Papers and panels will be presented on many aspects of Native American
Literature. We especially welcome papers and panels that deal particularly with
native land issues. Other topics to be covered will include tribal sovereignty,
narrative strategies, cultural mediations, interdisciplinary arts, literature
and history, cultural contexts, and individual authors. There will also be
panel discussions on pedagogical methods, individual texts, authors, and film.
We are pleased to locate our symposium at a tribal venue again this year and
look forward to your spirited participation.
