Fourth Annual Susquehanna River Symposium Set For Sept. 25-26

Bucknell University will be hosting the annual Susquehanna River Symposium on September 25-26, with this year's theme "Cultures at the Confluence: Native Americans, Ecology, and the Susquehanna Valley."
The symposium will include a series of panels, beginning at 3 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. on Saturday, on topics related to past, present and future presence and influence of Native American culture on the region and efforts to highlight this heritage.
The program will also include a Saturday evening performance by the Northeastern Indian dance troupe Native Nations, and an optional afternoon trip to the nationally historic Confluence of the Susquehanna River just south of Bucknell, site of Chief Shikellamy’s old Shamokin community, and focus of research to be discussed at the symposium.
