The Native American Literature Symposium

The Native American Literature Symposium, Many Voices, One Center.

The date is: March 27-29,
The location is: Minneapolis, MN.

The Native American Literature Symposium is organized by an independent group of indigenous scholars committed to making a place where Native voices can be heard.
Since 2002, we have brought together some of the most influential voices in Native America to share our stories-- in art, prose, poetry, film, religion, history, politics, music, philosophy, and science --from our worldview.

With literature as a crossroads where many forms of knowledge meet—art, history, politics, science, religion—we welcome everyone once again to join us in spirited participation on all aspects of American Indian studies. There will be panel discussions, readings, exhibits, demonstrations, and workshops highlighting the heritage and impact of Native Americans on current American literature.
