2009 Indigenous Mapping Network Conference

Hosted by Oneida Nation of Wisconsin
June 14 - 16, 2009

Native American / Indigenous / Aboriginal / tribal attendees and supporters of mapping efforts on aboriginal territories welcome. Let's learn, share, and grow together - find new ways of using mapping tools to solve sovereignty, environmental, and cultural issues.

Previous ideas resulting from this conference include supporting and training indigenous people who may have little experience with modern mapping technologies. Efforts also are made to keep abreast and inform the UN, governments, academics, and the technological world about traditional "mapping" technologies.

The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin welcomes conference attendees, speakers, and vendors to Green Bay, WI, for the 2009 Indigenous Mapping Network Conference. We hope to provide an educational and fascinating conference for everyone. We will also share a brief look at Oneida culture and what life is like in Northeast Wisconsin.
