MANISTEE, MICHIGAN Organizers of the 20th Annual Anishinaabe
Family Language & Culture Camp are looking for presenters for
this highly successful American Indian language. The previous camps
have been successful because of the good presenters that have participated.
Organizers attend one another's presentations and socialize with
the guests; they support one another and love of the Anishinaabemowin
year's camp will be held on July 26, 27, 28. If you are interested
in being a presenter, you need to submit a presentation outline
and a biography.
Two different presentation outlines to be submitted. Some presenters
will be asked to present for up to three different times. Each presentation
should be approximately one and half hour long, but if you have
a presentation that requires a longer amount of time, please let
organizers know ahead of time in order to accommodate your workshop.
Please also let us know if your presentation is meant to target
a particular age group or other demographic. Organizers also need
to know if your workshop is total Anishinaabemowin immersion and
if you will have a translator or if you will be presenting in the
English language with some Anishinaabemowin.
Please note that if you have handouts for your presentation,
you are responsible for making sure you have enough copies because
there are no copiers on site.
Most of language camp guests do not speak Anishinaabemowin and
some understand it, but do not speak it yet. For some of the guests,
this is the only time that they get to hear Anishinaabemowin being
used. It would be appreciated for all of the presenters to remain
visible throughout the camp and to be available to speak in Anishinaabemowin.
Along with your presentation outline and biography, organizers
will also need to know if you require lodging. Please send all of
your information via email as soon as possible and do not wait until
the last minute otherwise you may not make it on the presenter list.
It would be appreciated if your presentation outline and biography
could be sent as separately attached documents in the email. It's
just easier for us when process our program book.
The deadline for all of this information is May 15.
