This fall seminar series will promote opportunities for faculty, students, tribal and other surrounding communities to become part of an international exchange. Participants will be able to exchange and gain knowledge about key concepts and intersections of Global Indigeneity and Sustainability. This will be accomplished through the invitation of key international researchers, practitioners, and academics who will be presenters throughout the semester. The seminar series and discussions will be framed by and based around the SDI theoretical model of sustainability. The seminar will be conducted over the course of 14 weeks at CMN during the Fall Semester of 2016. All topics are organized based on the SDI theoretical model of sustainability.
