Workshop in conjunction with Dine Language Teachers

Deep Sovereignty Issues in Contemporary Dine
and Indigenous Language Revitalization Education

Thursday, January 24, 2013
Room 9010, Henderson Fine Arts Center
9:45 - 10:45 am.

Presenter: Dr. LARRY W EMERSON, educator, artist, scholar, activist & farmer will lead this workshop. Emerson is from Tsedaak'aan

Deep sovereignty extends beyond the mere political realm and can embrace a pre-colonized and decolonized perspective regarding contemporary Dine and/or Indigenous society. Equating sovereignty only with the political does not really help us understand Indigenous-centered Dine language revitalization. A deeper understanding of tribal sovereignty and nation-building can help us understand teaching and learning inherent in issues regarding identity, history, culture, language, politics and worldview.

Workshop in conjunction with Dine Language Teachers Conference, San Juan College, Farmington, NM.
