MANISTEE, Mich. — Organiners of the Anishinaabe Family and Culture Camp are looking for presenters for this year’s camp that will be held in Manistee, Michigan on July 26 – 18, 2019.
Each presentation will be approximately 1 ½ hours long. Provisions can be made if you have a presentation that requires a longer amount of time to accommodate your workshop.
Interested parties should submit a presentation outline and a biography. Included in the outline should be the target age group of presentation and any applicable demographic. Also, let organizers know if your workshop is total Anishinaabemowin immersion, 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 our guests do not speak Anishinaabemowin and some understand it, but do not speak it yet. For some of camp 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, please state if you require lodging. Please send all of information by email as soon as possible. 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 we process our program book. (Phone calls are accepted to state your interest in presenting, but the written information is required by the deadline for consideration.) Please feel free to call Kenny Pheasant at 231-398-6892.
If you know anyone who may be interested in presenting at the Camp, by all means, please forward this letter to them and have them state in their email who recommended them to present.
The deadline for all of this information is May 10, 2019.
