PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND
The Center for Indigenous Peoples Rights (CIPR) Annual Gathering is a convening of Indigenous law and policy practitioners, community leaders, and culture bearers to highlight regional efforts, share best practices, and to elevate issues for discussion and action-planning.
This year's theme, Reclaiming + Repatriating, refers to the law and policy efforts of Indigenous peoples and communities reclaiming their lands and identities, as well repatriating sacred objects and ancestral remains back to their respective homes.
The Gathering is geared towards Indigenous law and policy practitioners, tribal communities, and legal professionals specializing in Indigenous and human rights law and policy. However, the general public is encouraged to attend for a better understanding of the vast field of Indigenous law and policy, especially as it relates to Indigenous communities on the east coast and across U.S. territories.
