Dene / Athabaskan Language Conference
June 27–29, 2017
The 2017 Dene/Athabaskan Language Conference is scheduled to take place on June 27th, 28th, and 29th at Cliff Castle Casino, hosted by, and on the territory of the Yavapai-Apache Nation, Camp Verde, Arizona.
This is the only international conference dedicated to the language and cultures of the Dene/Athabaskan people, the largest Indigenous language family in North America, and represents a unique meeting opportunity for Athabaskan and non-Athabaskan scholars from the US and Canada. All aspects of the scientific study of Dene/Athabaskan languages will be discussed, but this conference will be the first ever with a special focus on Apache languages and their conservation. The results will be documented in podcasts, as well as published in the Alaska Native Language Working Papers.
The official announcement will follow soon, and the Conference Website is under construction.
