Indigenous Studies Conference

Angie, Madel and I are working on a panel for the Indigenous Studies Conference taking place next year in Oaklahoma. As soon as we've finalized the panel theme and our individual abstracts I'll post them here, but in the meantime, check out the conference's call for papers, which just from the diversity on its steering committee is very very exciting.


The Native American Studies Program at the University of Oklahoma is hosting an interdisciplinary meeting in Indigenous studies May 3-5, 2007 to share research and discuss the development of an academic association for our field. We invite submissions of individual papers or panels of papers on any topic in Indigenous studies. All persons working in the field are invited and encouraged to submit proposals. Individual paper proposals should include a title and précis of no more than 250 words. Panel proposals should include a title and brief description of the panel and a title and précis for each paper. Proposals can be sent electronically or by regular mail to:

Robert Warrior (
Native American Studies
633 Elm Avenue, Room 216
University of Oklahoma
Norman, OK 73019

Review of proposals will begin October 15, 2006, and proposals will be accepted until January 15, 2007.
