The Seventh Annual Vine Deloria, Jr. Indigenous Studies Symposium is scheduled to be held July 12-14, 2012 at Northwest Indian College, Bellingham, Washington. The purpose of this symposium is to bring together scholars and tribal elders interested in honoring the life and work of our friend, colleague, and mentor, Vine Deloria, Jr., and to present new ideas and expand knowledge in those areas Vine devoted his life to. There will be no topical focus or theme this summer. The symposium itself is organized as a series of intellectually driven panels – no “workshop” type presentations – as well as several invited addresses. Individual presentations may be formal or informal, but in keeping with the spirit of Vine, no PowerPoint or electronic presentations will be allowed.
