26th American Indian Workshop:
"New Buffaloes" - New Ways? Traditions and Transitions in Native American Culture: What has lasted, what has changed?
The term "new buffalo" is used as a metaphor for Indian casinos by both Indians and Non-Indians. The 26th American Indian Workshop dealt with a wider range of "New Buffaloes" and their effects on Native American culture. These "New Buffaloes" include Native American commercial art, music, film, literature, tourism, on- and off-reservation economic enterprises - and casinos.
The 26th American Indian Workshop was attended by 83 registered participants from 14 counties:
- Czech Republic
- Great Britain
Of the 83 participants, 6 were members of Indian Tribes from Canada or the USA.
Within the 3-days-workshop 34 papers were read. Some of the speakers have published their papers on this webpage.
