About NACC 2021

Join us from October 7th through the 9th in a three-day celebration of INDIGENUITY! We are bringing together indigenous people at the top of their field to share the importance of tradition and innovation. There will be astronauts, scholars, artists, authors, music, and more! Don’t miss this free opportunity to see the diversity of indigenous culture and join in on the celebration!

This year’s cultural celebration is founded upon Dr. Dan Wildcat’s coined term, “indigenuity,” which connects indigenous tradition and innovation, simply indigenous ingenuity. Dr. Wildcat is a professor at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas, and an accomplished scholar who writes on Indigenous knowledge, technology, environment, and education. Through a previous three-part series earlier in 2021, Dr. Wildcat presented these ideas as a frame of reference towards considering the land, air, and water, inspiring generations to use their gifts and talents to create a sustainable future.

With our cultural celebration, we are making this connection to all discourses and disciplines. The three-day event will host a variety of presenters, from astronauts to IndigeNerds. On October 7th through the 9th, there will be a range of workshops, presentations, and concerts that focus on these foundational ideas of indigenuity, happening at the Museum of Native American History in Bentonville, AR!

Some of our presenters include Dr. Dan Wildcat, Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer, Dr. Lee Francis IV, Johnnie Jae, Johnnie Diacon, Weyodi Oldbear, and indigenous astronauts Dr. John Herrington and Dr. Jose Hernandez! We will also host musical guests, Los Texmaniacs, and Lauren Nicole Clare!

Watch the weekend celebration on our Facebook Live! A Facebook account is not required to watch! Please RSVP to let us know you or your group plan to participate!

Some events and workshops will require pre-registration to participate in-person or on Zoom due to limited seating.
