Thank you Markus. Not ideal, but I appreciate the work of the committee in finding alternatives and keeping AIW active.

Subject: [AIW] News and greetings from the AIW committee


Dear friends and colleagues,

We hope that you are all doing well despite the pandemic. You may have wondered why you have not heard any news about the postponed 41st American Indian Workshop that was supposed to take place in Munich this year — or the Workshop that was planned for next year in Cyprus.

Since the current health situation does not seem to change in the foreseeable future, the committee met yesterday in a video conference to talk about the possibilities of how we can conduct the AIW despite the pandemic.

Since workshops probably cannot be held in the usual presence, we decided with heavy hearts to find alternative possibilities, such as a virtual workshop. It is important to us that the AIW remains alive despite the pandemic, even if this is associated with limitations. The organizers, Henry Kammler (Munich) and James Mackay (Nicosia), will now work out concepts, so that we can give you more detailed information by beginning of September.

We are looking forward to seeing you again and will keep you up to date. Stay healthy!

Best wishes,

Renate Bartl,  Markus Lindner, Thomas Donald Jacobs, Elzbieta Wilczyñska, Zuzanna Buchowska, Henry Kammler, Saskia Brill, Friedrike Nusko, James Mackay, Tania Giberyen, and Carlo Krieger
