"Raven and the Box of Daylight is the Tlingit story of Raven and his transformation of the world—bringing light to people via the stars, moon, and sun. This story holds great significance for the Tlingit people. The exhibition features a dynamic combination of artwork, storytelling, and encounter, where the Tlingit story unfolds during the visitor’s experience.
The glass art of Preston Singletary (American, born 1963) is rooted in the narrative of Raven and the Box of Daylight. Primarily known for his celebration of Tlingit art and design, Singletary will explore new ways of working with glass inspired by Tlingit design principles. Tlingit objects were traditionally used to show wealth and tell stories by representing elements of the natural world,..." Excerpt from Exhibition Overview, Museum of Glass Read more

Optional Half Day Pre-Conference Field Trip Sponsored by the Squaxin Island Tribe
June 17, 2019
The Summer Institute of the Enduring Legacies Native Cases Initiative will build on more than thirteen years of work developing interdisciplinary teaching case studies on significant issues in Indian Country and offering workshops for educators to network and learn how to use the cases in their classes and staff development. Our interdisciplinary collection of cases covers a wide range of topics applicable to all academic fields. Problem-based learning, place-based learning, and collaborative learning are the cornerstones of our approach. Cases promote student engagement and critical thinking in the context of complex and pressing real world issues. They are a terrific way of promoting diversity. At this institute, we will practice working through cases collaboratively to learn how to facilitate case analysis and discussion. The Institute will feature a number of new cases on the cutting edge of current issues in Indian Country.
Native Cases Summer Institute Particulars: The Institute is located on the reservation of the Squaxin Island Tribe. The summer institute will run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. Breakfast is at 8 a. m. with the program starting at 9 a.m. Pre-reading and homework are required each evening. Campuses and organizations are invited to bring teams or attend the institute as individuals. Space is limited and registration is first come, first served. The registration fee for the two-day institute is $100/ per person which includes breakfast and lunch each day.
Half -day Field Trip Sponsored by Squaxin Island Tribe: This optional pre-conference field trip will give participants an in-depth introduction to the Squaxin Island Tribe—its history, culture, and tribal administration.

Call for Zine Submissions
Ends on February 1, 2019
This call is open to all Indigenous people living in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia. This includes residents of those states belonging to Native communities outside of the Pacific Northwest, and outside of what is currently the United States. Everyone is encouraged to participate regardless of age, professional experience, media, or tribal affiliation.
About this Opportunity
Attention, all Indigenous writers and artists! As part of yəhaw̓, a very special literary and arts zine is being published – both online and a limited print run – in early 2019 to showcase and celebrate Indigenous voice, presence, continuance, and the remarkable generativity of Indigenous writers working across genres in sacred Salish territories. Visual artists are also warmly encouraged to submit work for publication in the zine. Associated readings and events will also feature yəhaw̓ zine writers and artists at Bellevue College and South Puget Sound Community College in early 2019.
We are now accepting submissions for the zine and welcome all current yəhaw̓ artists to submit as well as other Indigenous creatives across the Pacific Northwest. There is no set theme for this publication, but we encourage submitters to consider the Lifting the Sky story and overall yəhaw̓ project values when selecting work. Submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, visual art, experimental work, and hybrids are all welcome. Submissions which include or are written in tribal languages, and submissions from Indigenous youth, women, Two Spirit/LGBTQ writers and artists, and writers/artists with disabilities are particularly welcome. Work previously submitted to other publications is welcome. Regardless of genre or form, each submission should fit approximately on one page or a two page spread maximum - the zine will be risograph printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper folded in half for an overall book size of 8.5 by 5.5 inches. All submissions received by February 1 will be considered. Selected contributors will receive a $75 honorarium and a free copy of the publication.
Your 4th / 5th grade student are invited to participate in a day of cultural learning.
