About the Conference
The Faculty Working Group on Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) at the University of Pennsylvania hosts a free two-day conference, "Native American Studies at Penn: Approaches to Indigenous Knowledge," designed in part to promote the emergence of the new Minor in NAIS. The conference highlights innovative approaches to recovering and engaging with Indigenous knowledge in the classroom and in the field. Presenters also recount the early histories of Penn's relations with Native students, and envision future plans for NAIS.
