The 2016 Tri-History Conference will take place in Oneida (Green Bay), Wisconsin, June 14-17, 2016. The title for the conference is “Wondering, Witness, Worship, and War: Historical Encounters between the Episcopal and Anglican Church and Indigenous Peoples in North America.”  The Tri-History Conference is sponsored by the Episcopal Women’s History Project (EWHP), the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC), and National Episcopal Historians and Archivists (NEHA).

We invite papers, panels, presentations and workshops to explore the history of the relationship of the Episcopal and Anglican Church and Indigenous Peoples in North America. The Episcopal and Anglican Church has been present among Indigenous Peoples in North America for centuries in a complicated history that has hardly been perfect. In recent decades it has extended significant resources to illuminating historical relationships and dealing with generational impact of its actions.

Topics might include Episcopal and Anglican Church relationships with the Arapaho, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Crow, Inuit, Lakotah, Monacan, Navajo, Ojibwe, Oneida, Pamunkey, Rappahannock, Rosebud Sioux, Seminole, or Ute, just to name a few. Workshops of interest to those who engage in archival activities and historical scholarship might include such topics as historical research methods, archival procedures, or conducting oral histories. Presentations on topics such as the church’s involvement with and repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery, or actions of significant Episcopalians, such as Bishop Whipple of Minnesota (who in 1862 appealed to Abraham Lincoln and saved the lives of 265 Dakota people scheduled to be hanged) or Chief Daniel Bread (who played a key role in establishing the Oneida presence in Wisconsin after their removal from New York, taking his cause to Washington and confronting President Andrew Jackson) would be welcome.

Please email abstracts of approximately 300 words for 20-minute papers along with a brief biography by December 1, 2015 to Dr. Pamela Cochran at pdh3q@virginia.edu. Abstracts should include author’s name, institutional affiliation if any, and paper title, panel proposal or workshop proposal. Use of multi-media is encouraged. Submission of a proposal constitutes a commitment to attend the conference if accepted. It is expected papers and presentations will be published by an appropriate sponsoring organization (publication or website), however authors may opt to not have materials published. All proposals will be acknowledged, and presenters will be notified by the end of January 2016.

The Tri-History Conference will be held in Oneida (Green Bay), Wisconsin from Tuesday evening, June 14 through Friday morning, June 17, 2016. The Annual Meeting and Banquet of the Historical Society will be held immediately prior to the conference on Monday, June 13 through Tuesday, June 14. For additional information, contact Planning Committee Facilitator, Matthew Payne at (920) 279-6267.

The Tri-History Conference is sponsored by the Episcopal Women’s History Project (EWHP), the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC), and National Episcopal Historians and Archivists (NEHA).
