The Chicago American Indian Community Collaborative’s Education Committee invites you to attend the 4th annual Urban Native Education Conference. The theme of the 4th annual Urban Native Education Conference is Indigenous Futures 2020. The organizers of this conference are situated in Native Chicago, by which they mean that their focus, research, teaching, and service is working for and with American Indian people and communities in the Chicago area. With more than 70% of the Indigenous population of the U.S. living primarily in urban settings, it is clear that urban Indian education is a significant issue.
We invite proposals for sessions that address the conference theme. The audience for this conference includes Indigenous educators, scholars, youth, elders, and community members. Please submit proposals by Friday, February 28, 2020. Accept/decline notifications will be sent to the email used in the proposal process by Friday, March 20, 2020.
