Indigenous Knowledge Systems - 10th Annual NASAA Symposium

Submitted by Elissa Washuta on

Please join Native American Students in Advanced Academia (NASAA) for their 10th Annual Symposium of Native and Indigenous graduate research. The theme of this year is Indigenous Knowledge Systems.

Indigenous knowledge systems are represented in many ways. Concepts of relatedness and interconnectedness are embedded in the creation, production and sharing of ways of knowing. These systems inform Indigenous research, scholarship and activism. We invite you to learn as Indigenous and Native graduate students and faculty discuss their work at our 10th Annual Graduate Student Research Symposium.
