Join us for the 49th annual Dakota Conference on Northern Plains History, Literature, Art and Archaeology, set for April 21-22 at the Center for Western Studies. The Conference will examine the variety of religious expression in the region, both historical and contemporary. Religious practices evolve over time, but Native Americans have had to struggle to maintain their spiritual traditions since early contact. Yet today the vision quest, pipe ceremony, sweat lodge, and peyotism continue to be practiced by Plains Indians. The conference seeks to explore ways in which religious practice among Plains Indians has persisted and changed.
Join us throughout the day on Friday, May 12, as we celebrate retiring Augustana University President Rob and Angie Oliver.
