Join us for “Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities”

“Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities”
November 8–9, 2019
Giustina Ballroom, Ford Alumni Center
1720 E. 13th Ave.
University of Oregon
Eugene, Oregon (Kalapuya Ilihi)
 
Join us on November 8 and 9 for the annual conference of the Western Humanities Alliance “Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities” hosted by the Oregon Humanities Center and University of Oregon’s Native American Studies program.
Bringing together an impressive group of native scholars, community members, tribal leaders, and UO faculty and students, the conference will explore the challenges and opportunities of collaborations between the academy and America’s native and First Nations communities to use the arts and humanities to advance the public good.
 
“Native American Studies and the Native Strategies Group are really excited to partner with the Oregon Humanities Center for this conference,” says Dr. Kirby Brown, Assistant Professor of English and Native American Studies. “As a public institution in a state with nine federally recognized tribes and whose existence is inextricably tied to histories of dispossession and colonial violence, the University of Oregon must continue to cultivate and strengthen ties with tribal nations. Making space for Indigenous scholars, filmmakers, performers, community members, staff, and students to come together and share the important work going on at our institutions and across our communities is one way to honor those commitments.”
 
Featured keynote speakers include Fawn Sharp (Quinault Indian Nation), President, and Clarita Lefthand-Begay (Diné Nation), University of Washington professor, who will address Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples; and Mishuana Goeman (Tonawanda Band of Seneca), UCLA professor of American Indian Studies, who will speak on “Beyond Settler Apologies: Land Grant Institutions and Indigenous Futurities.”
 
In addition, numerous native scholars, community members, and tribal leaders will participate in ceremonies, panels, a concert reading and discussion of the play Salmon is Everything by UO Theatre Arts Professor Theresa May, and a film screening and discussion of the social justice documentary Promised Land. The film documents the struggles for federal recognition by the Chinook and Duwamish tribal nations. Filmmaker Sarah Salcedo and Tony Johnson (Chinook Indian Nation) will participate in the discussion.
 
The University of Oregon and the City of Eugene are situated on Kalapuya Ilihi, the traditional homelands and political territories of the Kalapuya peoples, whose descendants are now citizens of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians.
 
The conference is free and open to the public. The conference-rate hotel is The Phoenix Inn Suites, 850 Franklin Blvd. The WHA Conference room block is available until October 7, 2019. To make reservations, please call 541-344-0001 (toll free 800-344-0131) and ask for the Western Humanities Alliance Room Block. For more information and the complete program go to: ohc.uoregon.edu/2019-wha-symposium.
