NAKEM Centennial Conference

The conference is aimed to bring into focus the various critical practices of the Ilokanos in the United States, the Philippines, and other countries and to reflect on these practices under the prism of the nexus of cultures, of the urgent need to reaffirm minority cultural and linguistic rights in the face of the hegemonic positioning of dominant cultures, and of the need to articulate the silences in the narratives of struggle and survival of Ilokanos everywhere.
