This plenary program emerges from the AAS Executive Committee’s First Nations Initiative, seeking to foreground the work of First Nations scholars on themes relevant to the discipline of anthropology. These plenaries are designed to create conversations about a variety of issues facing First Nations researchers engaging in all forms of anthropology. Speakers come from all over Australia and Turtle Island (North America) and include artists, curators, anthropologists and critical thinkers exploring representation, approaches to research and methodologies of research.
Each plenary session begins with a special keynote talk on a specific theme. Keynotes are followed by a panel discussion with time for audience Q&A.
These plenaries are open access to First Nations peoples. For details on how to register, please email the plenary convenor Dr Gretchen Stolte (Nez Perce, she/her) directly for further information on how to access them (gretchen.stolte(a)uwa.edu.au). Members of the AAS and everyone else should register for the conference via https://aasconf.org/2021/registration.
The Executive Committee thanks Dr Gretchen Stolte for her work in organising the plenary program.
