Hosted by Northwest Indian College
Bellingham, Washington – July 8, 9, 10, 2010
The purpose of this symposium is to bring together Native and non-native scholars and tribal elders who are interested in honoring the life and work of our friend, colleague, and mentor, Vine Deloria, Jr., and in presenting new ideas and expanding knowledge in several key areas that Vine devoted his life to. The symposium this year will focus on Indigenous philosophy, religion, spirituality, and related topics. The symposium itself will be organized as a series of intellectually driven panels – no “workshop” type presentations – and specially invited speakers addressing these issues. Individual presentations may be formal or informal, but in keeping with the spirit of Vine, there will be no PowerPoint or other electronic presentations.
Registration fee – $100 (includes lunches and salmon dinner)
