The University of Dayton will hold a three-day colloquium featuring sessions on Native American identity and culture.

Moderated by Mary Anne Angel, Department of Communication

Alpha Phi Omega and Circle of Light volunteers helped raise awareness about hydraulic fracking and mining during their 2014 trip to Standing Rock Reservation. After an overview of the trip by volunteers, Phyllis Young will discuss the connection between energy production and human rights and sustainable development. Water will be a key theme.

Phyllis Young is a life-long Lakota activist and Standing Rock Reservation Tribal Council Member. She co-founded Women of All Rd Nations (WARN) in the 1970s, which addresses issues pertaining to American Indian women and their families.
