Indian Country Conversations (ICC)

The Indian Country Conversations program is a series of encounters that brings leaders from Native American and indigenous communities to Willamette University to interact with the campus, the broader community, local reservation communities, and the Chemawa Indian School (a federal boarding school located in Salem).  A Native American Advisory Council, composed of statewide native leaders, Native American students and alumni, and Willamette staff and faculty, guides the selection of guests and plans activities.  Each semester, leaders and artists from Indian Country are brought to the Willamette campus for dialogue, teaching, and learning.
