And Introducing this year's 2008 Keynote: Phyllis Young
We're proud to announce our 2008 keynote speaker, Mni Yuha Naginwin, Phyllis Young, coming all the way from North Dakota. She is one of the co-founders of Women Of All Red Nations and has been active in work among Native American people and the Lakota secession movement for over 35 years! (for more info, check website)

WORKSHOPS- (Include, but not limited to) A Critique of Western Feminism from the lens of Indigenous Women's Movements in Latin America, Not Your Average Tea Party: the Tactics of the National Woman's Party, Sports, Feminism and Title IX, and Masculinities and the Gender Binary.

THEME- "Crossing Borders." Our hope is to challenge the fixed notions, meanings, and practices in which many of us take comfort. We want to elaborate terms of struggle that not only account for, but embrace difference, contingency, and even contradiction; crossing an array of borders, exploring the landscapes of the borders themselves, and honoring the vulnerability that such journeys demand.

Tables are still available for groups that would like to table!
