The 34th Annual ALANA Student Leadership Conference Schedule
September 23 - 30, 2020
Conference Theme: United First Nations

The theme of United First Nations represents the coming together to understand and celebrate native peoples and their origin story. We must understand there needs to be unity because the same fight is being fought. With origin routes comes the knowledge of different roots. Through the search of history, there is a better understanding of stories and our ancestors. With the discoveries, the importance of storytelling is embraced and understood. In the end, there is a better understanding of who we are.
