On behalf of the Conference for American Indian Women of Proud Nations (AIWPN), it is a pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the eighth annual conference on the beautiful campus of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. The conference will be held September 19, 2014.
The conference theme is “Intergenerational Conversations: Sharing Our Stories to Encourage Healing.”
Since its establishment in 2006, the Conference for American Indian Women of Proud Nations has worked diligently to reaffirm Native traditions including a holistic approach to wellness, encourage contemporary artistic expression and empower Native women and girls. That’s what AIWPN, Inc. is all about: telling the American Indian women’s story - the good and the bad - and helping to build healthy youth, families and communities.
We look forward to your participation in this inspiring and affirming conference that facilitates intergenerational transfer of Native ways and knowledge to young American Indian women and college and high school female Indian students.
Please join AIWPN as we continue to empower our communities. For more information about the conference, visit the web site at www.aiwpn.org. We are also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/aiwpn and Twitter at www.twitter.com/aiwpn.
We are honored by your interest and support in helping us to build strong and vibrant communities.
