Get to Know Our 2017 Keynote: Dr. Michael 'Migizi' Sullivan
Dr. Michael 'Migizi' Sullivan is an Anishinaabe linguist from the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe reservation in northwestern Wisconsin. He holds degrees from Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Community College, the University of Wisconsin-Superior, and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. He is currently on leave from the College of Saint Scholastica serving as the resident linguist for the Waadookodaading Ojibwe Language Immersion School at LCO where he contributes to curriculum design, language proficiency assessment, and immersion teacher training. He enjoys singing at powwows, round dances and ceremonies, in addition to hunting and fishing with his family.
Languages and Cultures:
New ways of seeing, more ways of being
Our 2017 fall conference will explore how languages and cultures give our students new lenses through which to view their worlds, while also shaping their cultural identities. ACTFL's 2017 call for us to Lead with Languages highlights the critical role languages play in our worlds, on both individual and societal levels. We will welcome Prof. Michael Sullivan, speaker and teacher of Ojibwe language and culture to explore this topic through his keynote address. Will you please join us as well?

Tips for Registration and Payment
We use Paypal to process online payments. A PayPal account is not necessary, however currently it requires that the registrant also be the cardholder since it automatically populates that person's name into its system.
For registrants whose organization will make payment, there are three options:
Register as a Group
Register your colleagues as a group using the "register a guest" option.
The person who registers the group should be the person making payment. In other words, the person whose name is on the credit card should be the primary registrant since PayPal will require that person to be the cardholder. If the cardholder is not in the group use one of the methods outlined above.
