CNRC Indigenous Research Conference
March 24 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
The WSU Center for Native American Research & Collaboration invites you to an Indigenous Research Conference, focusing upon the intersection between Indigenous knowledge, scholarship, and nation building. We look forward to learning from experienced researchers and knowledge keepers and to creating networking opportunities for young scholars and tribal professionals.
The conference will feature a keynote address by Dr. Theresa Jean Ambo (Gabrieliño-Tongva). Dr. Ambo is an Assistant Professor and co-director of the Indigenous Futures Institute at UC San Diego. She holds a Ph.D. in Education from UCLA and is a William T. Grant Scholar, class of 2027. Her primary area of research examines the relational nature and status between public universities and local Native nations. She also writes with colleagues about trans-Indigenous education and land acknowledgment practices. The title of Dr. Ambo’s talk is “Realizing the Possibilities of Research Partnerships in Nation Building.”
