This plenary program emerged 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 were designed to create conversations about a variety of issues facing First Nations researchers engaging in all forms of anthropology. Speakers came from all over Australia and Turtle Island (North America) and included artists, curators, anthropologists and critical thinkers exploring representation, approaches to research and methodologies of research.
Each plenary session started with a special keynote talk on a specific theme. Keynotes were followed by a panel discussion with time for audience Q&A.
These plenaries were open access to First Nations peoples. The Executive Committee thanks Dr Gretchen Stolte for her work in organising the plenary program.
