American Indian nations and peoples continue to engage in diverse arenas of activism and to develop tactics that seek to protect Indigenous ways of being. While the idea or ideal of activism conjures positive and negative images of political movements and protests, many other actions constitute acts of activism. Today, many of the challenges of the past remain, yet new, unexpected threats to American Indian survival have emerged. This year’s conference looks to explore and broaden discussions about the reasons, motivations, and debates that move different people, organizations, nations and/or communities to challenge and resist various systems of oppression. What new challenges do American Indian people face in the 21st century? How are indigenous peoples generating new paradigms of action as well as maintaining cultural integrity and responsibilities? Why have the debates about activism among scholars, activists, and communities created contention, and what is at stake in what is contested? http://americanindian.clas.asu.edu/events. 13th Native Women & Men’s Wellness Conference. March 16-19, 2014. Town & Country Hotel, San Diego, CA. CALL FOR PROPOSALS. Deadline: November 8, 2013.
