    This year will be our Fifth Annual Native American Cultural Celebration titled Indigenuity: Building a Bridge to the Futurehappening October 7-9th! 

    While this year we will host our programming virtually, we are reaching out farther than ever to broadcast the movement of Indigenuity! Indigenuity is a term coined by our host, Dr. Dan Wildcat, to mean “indigenous ingenuity,” how traditional knowledge meets innovation! This year we have gathered together top indigenous professionals in their fields to speak on this important topic! 

    We have specifically designed these programs to spearhead our education movement and inspire generations to the importance of these topics! Our goal is to plant the seeds of traditional knowledge with educators and students. There is a full menu of the 3-day celebration to inspire future professionals to create sustainable solutions for our planet and all our relations.

    We have something for everyone!
