Nations Within Nations
Living Dialogues on Governance and Cultures
Digital Transcripts and Learning Guides
This conference, the first of a series, will consider the cultural and legal status of ethnic groups within modern Nation States. Multidisciplinary in approach, the conference will examine the historical and contemporary political and legal status of these groups as they exist within federal or unitary structures of a larger state. In doing this we will pay special attention to how the Academy has been of service to indigenous Nations and ways in which we can work in solidarity with these groups.
This conference was held November 2 and 3, 2009 and was sponsored by Creighton University College of Arts & Sciences, Native American Studies Program, School of Law, and College of Business. The event was made possible by a generous grant from the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
