Join us at the annual Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium on April 16, 2021. The symposium is a unique opportunity to present your work and connect with Indigenous Studies and Indigenous scholars at Michigan State University and beyond. This year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Blaire Topash-Caldwell (Pokagon Band of Potawatomi), is a Mellon Public Humanities Fellow at the Newberry and the first archivist at Pokagon Band. Dr. Topash-Caldwell supports and contributes to contemporary Anishinaabe thought, art, and activist movements by opening and recontextualizing archives.

Presenting at the symposium is a requirement for receiving a Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Studies.
