Tulane University Hosts 2nd Annual Indigenous Symposium
Tulane University and the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South are hosting the 2nd annual Indigenous Symposium. The symposium centers on indigenous perspectives that challenge colonial narratives, past and present. WWNO’s Laine Kaplan-Levenson sat down with symposium co-chair Dr. Laura Kelly, to learn more about the event.
Dr. Kelly wants the symposium to challenge what she sees as a mainstream misconception that Native Americans are a relic of the past. Laine begins the conversation responding to that issue.
