Call for Proposals

DEADLINE: October 25, 2006

Featured Speakers: Poet, writer, filmmaker Sherman Alexie; artist and sculptor
Brent Learned; activist and author Noenoe Silva; and writer Debra Magpie

With literature as a crossroads where many forms of knowledge meet—art, history,
politics, science, religion—we welcome once again spirited participation on all
aspects of Native American studies. We invite proposals for individual papers,
panel discussions, readings, exhibits, demonstrations, and workshops.

This year we are pleased to announce two new awards to be made in 2007:
The Beatrice Medicine for Scholarship in American Indian Studies and
The Morning Star Award for Creative Writing

All queries, proposals, registration forms, and checks should be sent to the
Program Director:
