Sustainable Wisdom Conference 2016

Integrating Indigenous Knowhow for Global Flourishing

Sep 11-15, 2016 | University of Notre Dame | Notre Dame, IN 

Hosted by the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi
Conference Program Chair & Contact: Darcia Narvaez

The conference brought together an interdisciplinary set of scholars and artists that integrate first-nation and mainstream contemporary understandings to move toward a flourishing planet. The speakers were selected for their specialty areas which range from science, history, education, psychology, and anthropology. The purpose of the conference and accompanying books is to bring to a wider audience an awareness of “first ways,” what we know about their effects on flourishing and how to integrate them into modern life for global flourishing.

Poet in residence: Kim Blaeser.

Artist in residence: Anthony Chee Emerson
