This year’s Conference theme HEALING THE DIVIDE will seek to foster a space of healing, sharing and learning open to all. For centuries, Indigenous Peoples have endured forced and violent assimilation, theft of religious and cultural practices, mockery and misappropriation of their cultural identities and the continued display and sale of their most sacred cultural patrimony needed for ongoing health. These policies and attitudes have resulted in the loss of culture, religion, language and other ancestral knowledge bases, culminating in historical trauma that all Indian Country experiences today. Let’s come together as a community of Tribal leaders, Tribal cultural resource practitioners, federal and state agents, foreign and domestic museums and institutions, academics, artists, dealers, collectors and youth to heal the divide, illuminate answers and develop respectful repatriation practices.
Sponsorship Opportunities are available. SHOW YOUR COMMITMENT TO NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURAL HERITAGE.
