The symposium will be held April 8-13 at NSU in Tahlequah. Proposals are being accepted for concurrent sessions related to the theme “Celebrating Indigenous Women.”

The release states presentations should tell the stories of past and present women leaders, from the most well known and celebrated to those who are just beginning to be recognized. This will include those who have made significant contributions in the areas of law, literature, anthropology, history, art, language revitalization and others, the release states.

According to the release, a conference committee will conduct a blind review of each proposal, and the best proposals will articulate a clear objective and purpose as well as importance of the point of view to be expressed.
