NN10: American Indian Caucus

I have terrific news. My dear friends rfall and Oke, who is a contributing editor at NAN, Native American Netroots have come up with a great idea for our American Indian Caucus this year in Las Vegas. rfall took a look at the NAN team who is able to attend NN10 this year.

That is only 7 out of 27 of the editorial staff who can attend our caucus this year. We also have many interested readers who cannot attend either. rfall thought it would be great to make the caucus a webinar like event so people who cannot attend in person can participate remotely. rfall will be video taping our caucus and NN10 is going to stream it.

This is a last minute arrangement and we are not on the streaming schedule yet, please check back.

Oke is going to man her IM during the event and we can take questions or comments from remote users. Please send her an email now so she can add you to her IM list.

The other reason we are able to stream our caucus is that we have a special presentation that will be given by Meteor Blades. MB is a registered member of the Seminole Tribe and he has an impressive history of Indian Activism that I became aware of from reading his comments over the years. Many people say that MB should publish his biography. Until then we will have a recording of the NDN part of his history taken at our caucus. I’ve asked him to recount his timeline for us during our caucus, afterward we’ll open it up for few questions and comments.

So please tune in and participate in our American Indian Caucus:

Thursday, July 22nd

10:30 AM – 11:45 AM

The Democracy for America scholarship program is back and bigger than ever. Check out all the details and get those applications in! Deadline for round 1 of 3 is April 30th.

We’re looking to send 40 progressive activists to Netroots Nation with compelling stories, who are active online and offline, and who will thrive from their Netroots Nation experience. Our goal is to find people who will expand the Netroots Nation community with fresh ideas and energy.

The DFA Netroots Nation Scholarship covers the cost of one all-access pass to Netroots Nation 2010 and hotel accomodations for one from July 22 – July 25, 2010 as well as a few select meals and outside events sponsored by Democracy for America. Scholarship winners will be responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from the convention and should bring enough money to cover all remaining meals.
