Four general topics on oral tradition can be addressed:

1. What is traditional about your oral traditions today?
2. What is non traditional about your oral traditions today?
3. Why maintain oral traditions?
4. Where will we find oral traditions in the future?

Our goal for the second Fridays Alaska Native Series is to present a diversity of Alaska Native voices and to engage people in open discussions. This event is sponsored by the UAA Campus Bookstore, Residence Life, the Camai Room, Native Student Services and Recruitment and Retention of Alaska Natives into Nursing.
