Join UCLA's American Indian Studies Center for an interdisciplinary public symposium on October 15th about the past, present, and future of the University of California's relationship with tribes. On the 15th, three panels will be held, discussing UCLA's centennial anniversary with respect to California Indians, the current state of relationships and projects between the UCs and tribal communities and institutions, and future innovative practices working with tribal communities. 

On October 16th, three workshops will be conducted whose goal is to create policy papers for developing community-engaged classrooms, creating better practices for American Indian and Indigenous retention and recruitment, and generating practices that ensure repatriation and maintenance of cultural heritage. This symposium is part of a series of critical events that mark the 50th anniversary of the American Indian Studies Center.
