Join us at the Conference
The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is excited to announce that our first national conference, The Spirit Survives: A National Movement Toward Healing will be held on October 2-3, 2018 in Carlisle, PA at the Comfort Suites, 10 S Hanover Street, Carlisle, PA 17013.
We’ve put together an amazing schedule of presenters and speakers from tribal nations, universities, and advocacy organizations across Indian Country.
This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the closing of Carlisle Industrial Indian School—the first federal Indian boarding school in the U.S.
Join us within the traditional homelands of the Haudenosaunee and Susquehannock peoples as we come together from Tribal Nations all over Indian Country for a national discussion on boarding school truth, justice, and healing.
We hope to see boarding school survivors and descendants, tribal leaders, and anyone working on understanding and addressing the impacts of boarding school trauma in Indian Country at the conference in Carlisle this fall!
