Welcome to the Conference for American Indian Women of Proud Nations (AIWPN). It is a pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the ninth annual conference. The conference will be held August 5-6, 2016.

The conference theme is “American Indian Women: Focusing on our 7th Generation.”

Since its establishment in 2006, the Conference for American Indian Women of Proud Nations has worked diligently to reaffirm Native traditions including a holistic approach to wellness, encourage contemporary artistic expression and empower Native women and girls.

We look forward to your participation in this inspiring and affirming conference that facilitates intergenerational transfer of Native ways and knowledge to young American Indian women and college and high school female Indian students.
