Northeastern American Indian Symposium Focuses on Technology

The theme for this year’s 41st Annual Symposium on the American Indian at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma is “Technology Future, Technology Past: A Woven Link.”

“Indigenous societies have endured as technological innovations have effected massive cultural change. The spiritual paths taken are interwoven as living links between the past and the future,” says the NSU symposium website. “Like the ancestral oak, the branches that reach out into new space are nurtured by the seasonal life within its circuitry and secured by the deeply woven roots that give it strength.”

Speakers include renowned Pawnee and Yakima artist Bunky Echo-Hawk and Haskell Indian Nations University professor and member of the Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma Dr. Daniel Wildcat, among others.

The symposium will feature a film series including a showing of “Killing Stereotypes: Assassin’s Creed and Natives in Popular Culture” tonight from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Webb Auditorium.

Indigenous languages forums punctuate the symposium as well including an Indigenous Languages Documentation & Revitalization Seminar presented by Dr. Colleen Fitzgerald and Dr. Brad Montgomery-Anderson on Friday, April 12.

The symposium ends this weekend with a pow wow.
