Your voice, vision, and participation will become a vital part of this 50th anniversary gathering. Generous sponsors are partnering with us so that we may offer a free and engaging two-day gathering.

 Space may become limited and early registration is strongly recommended.

Our symposium will offer an immersion into meaningful dialogue, story-telling and lessons surrounding the protection and denial of the civil rights of Native Americans in the fifty years since Congress passed the Indian Civil Rights Act in 1968. We invite you to come and share your perspectives on this crucial issue of Indian people’s civil and human rights.

We especially look forward to participation by Native American individuals, tribal leaders, scholars, Federal and State officials, activists, lawyers, students and members of the general public who want to be become informed about the most pressing issues facing Native Americans in the 21st century.

Please RSVP for yourself and encourage others to join you at this symposium.
