The Center of the American West, as part of its mission to increase awareness and knowledge about a variety of issues we face as Westerners, hosts a number of public events every year. We offer film screenings, panel discussions, public readings, and much more. We also host two annual events, our Stegner Award, which honors a prominent Westerner, and our Modern Indian Identity series, which features notable Native Americans talking about their experiences when balancing traditional culture with the demands of modern society. Come join us; we have something to offer everyone!
