I highly recommend the Vine Deloria Symposium at NW Indian College. I have attended these symposiums since 2004. It is an exposure to scholars, tribal leaders, and activists. It is educational, moving and inspiring. This year’s keynote speaker is David Wilkins, University of MN. "Red Prophet: The Punishing Intellectualism of Vine Deloria, Jr." https://www.amazon.com/David-E.-Wilkins/e/B001IU2SMEE
