47th Annual Symposium on the American Indian: Call for Proposals
The American Indian Heritage Committee is accepting proposals for the 47th Annual Symposium on the American Indian to be held April 8-13, 2019 at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK. Proposals are being accepted for concurrent sessions related to the theme Celebrating Indigenous Women, described in more detail below. Due to the nature of the event (free and open to the public), we are not able to provide honorariums or travel funds for workshop presenters. Priority will be given to submissions received by December 21, 2018. Questions? Contact us at 918.444.4350 or tribalstudies@nsuok.edu. More information about the Annual Symposium can be found on our website or our Facebook page.

The Conference Committee will conduct a blind review each proposal. The best proposals will articulate a clear objective and purpose as well as importance of the point of view to be expressed. Proposals need to show evidence of scholarly care, clear and effective argument, and/or a basis in research. Participants are welcome to submit multiple proposals. Concurrent sessions will range from 50 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes in length.

Which topic area most closely describes your presentation? *
The theme, Celebrating Indigenous Women, will honor both modern and legendary matriarchs, focusing on women who have contributed to the success and growth of our Indigenous communities and families. While not all tribes are defined as matrilineal or matriarchal, the contributions of women is ever present in Indigenous families and communities. Indigenous women serve as guides, teachers, caregivers, strategists, counselors and cultural preservationists. Not only do they serve as leaders within their families, but also their communities, their tribes, and professions. Presentations will tell the stories of our past and present women leaders, from the most well-known and celebrated to those who are just beginning to be recognized. This will include those who have made significant contributions in the areas of law, literature, anthropology, history, art, language revitalization and others.
