Join us at the Conference

The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is excited to announce our 2nd Annual Conference, Honoring Native Survivance will be held on November 19-21, 2019 in Tulalip, WA at the Tulalip Resort and Casino, 10200 Quil Ceda Blvd, Tulalip, WA 98271

Call for Presenters!

We’re looking for session proposals from boarding school survivors and descendants, tribal leaders, and anyone working to understand and address the impacts of boarding school trauma in Indian Country. Learn more.


Join us in the homelands of the Tulalip Tribes as we come together from all over Turtle Island for a national discussion on boarding school truth, healing, and justice.

Topics to be covered:

  • Truth in History—the facts about U.S. Indian Boarding Schools
  • Oral Histories—sharing our stories and honoring our memories
  • Impacts—understanding and confronting intergenerational trauma
  • Healing—transcending the pain and honoring our Indigenous life ways

We hope to see boarding school survivors and descendants, youth, tribal leaders, and anyone working on understanding and addressing the impacts of Indian boarding schools at the conference in Tulalip this fall!
