" “Every step I take forward is on a path paved by strong Indian women before me,” CHEROKEE CHIEF WILMA MANKILLER once pointed out while explaining the importance of having women in active leadership roles to “restore balance and wholeness to our communities.” Indigenous women had long held social, spiritual, economic, and political power in their societies. Overcoming the great historical ruptures of colonialism, indigenous women are reconnecting with leadership traditions and empowering themselves to help create a stronger, healthier, and more prosperous world for all. Join us at this special symposium for a historical perspective on the complex identities of Native women and lively, insightful discussion by elected tribal leaders, activists, artists, and business leaders about the challenges, obstacles, and opportunities confronting women today"
