2017 SOHA Conference

2017 SOHA Conference in Tempe Arizona Celebrates Looking Forward…
Our thanks to the more than eighty SOHA members and friends who joined us in Tempe, Arizona the weekend of April 27-29 for the SOHA Annual Conference! The 2017 Conference Committee was chaired by Juan Coronado with Marcia Gallo, Jennifer Keil, Farina King, Carlos Lopez, Sarah Moorhead, and Danette Turner.

From introductory workshops to inspiring plenary addresses and groundbreaking documentary films, we explored the many ways in which oral history, oral traditions, and storytelling help to bridge past, present, and future. Our Summer 2017 Newsletter is full of photos, remembrances, and reports on the many amazing people and presentations who came together to make this year’s gathering such a success.

Our successful Silent Auction and Raffle — organized and promoted by Indira Berndtson, Anna Coor, and Joyce Moore — raised funds for SOHA”s scholarships and awards. We also appreciate the support for the conference of the Ak-Chin Community, the HL Boyer Foundation, and the Salt River Project as well as individual donors.
