Environmentalism is a continuous and current concern for the indigenous Nations, Bands, Tribes, and Groups throughout the Americas. The call for proposals, papers, speakers, and videography is open to all academic disciplines, including but not limited to: anthropology, geography, literature and english, poetry, biology and ecology, history, sociology, psychology, philosophy, economics, political science, and communications. We also encourage those outside the academy to submit your work. Among the several attendant themes we are interested in presenting are:
How do indigenous communities effect the environment directly?
How do the environmental policies and inherent problems of nation-state governments in the Americas effect indigenous communities?
What are some action being taken by indigenous communities to improve or at least act on environmental problems?
How do multinational corporations affect indigenous communities and their environments?
How does this issue affect artists, artisans, craftspeople, poets, et al?
Do indigenous arts and crafts reflect the environment and/or environmental activism?
