The sixth World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education (WIPCE) will be held August 4-10, 2002 at Stoney Park, Nakoda Nation, Morley, Alberta, Canada. Registration is $500 and the deadline is April 30, 2002. The 2002 WIPCE theme is “The Answers Lie Within Us,” which is intended to help participants focus on the past, present, and future of cultural knowledge and practices and to identify current needs and strengthen future collaborations.
The fifth WIPCE was held in Hawaii in 1999 with over 5000 delegates. The sixth WIPCE will be hosted by the First Nations Adult Higher Education Consortium at a site near the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Stoney Park was selected for its spiritual significance to the indigenous people of the Nakoda Nation and their brothers and sisters of the plains of Western Canada.
The WIPCE conference registration will be limited to 5,000 delegates. For additional information please see the web page <www.fnahec.org/wipce2002> or contact them by email at <email@example.com> or telephone (403) 258-1775.
