11th Annual NOIS Spring Symposium: “The Waters that Connect Us”

April 24, 2012

The 11th Annual Symposium of Native & Indigenous Scholarship at the University of Washington

"The Waters that Connect Us"

Walker-Ames Room, Kane Hall

May 4, 2012

Symposium: 8:00AM-5:30PM

Film Screening: 7:00PM-9:00PM

This year, NOIS (Native Organization of Indigenous Scholars) changed its name from NASAA (Native American Students in Advanced Academia). The name change was done to reach out to the broader population of Indigenous students at the UW, particularly the Pacific Islanders, which is why I came on board as an officer. This year’s symposium theme commemorates that name change, and our keynotes are Pacific Islander professors Vicente M. Diaz and Christine Taitano Deslisle visiting from University of Illinois. The flyer and schedule are attached. I hope you can make all or part of the event.

Also, APIATT (Asian Pacific Islander American Think Tank), part of WA CAPAA (Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs) will be attending the first part of the symposium and then meeting from 12-1:30 in MGH 310D. The APIATT meeting, normally conducted by Frieda Takamura, will be hosted by Ben Kodama, and Representative Sharon Tomiko Santos will be present. APIASFA is welcome to attend the APIATT meeting as well. Please let me know if APIASFA will attend, as we may need to find a larger room.
