UAS 15th Annual Oratory Event, theme is TBD
Mark your calendars! UAS is preparing for their 15th Annual Oratory event, the theme is Equity.
Here are the following categories for students consideration:
A speech from memory or limited notes that demonstrates mastery in the art of public speaking using reasoning, elocution, and evidence to support the opinion. Topics may include, but are not limited to: subsistence, sovereignty, urban/rural conflicts, multilingualism, religious freedom, education, or traditional values. Make a strong use of supporting materials, elder’s teachings, cultural lore, published materials (magazines, newspapers, internet, etc.). Sources should be clearly cited during speech and included in notes or in manuscript.
A recitation of an indigenous speech, or persuasive document. Presentation material may be edited, but should accurately convey the author’s intent.
A recitation of one or more indigenous stories. Each story should be published, recorded, or transcribed with permission from the author, clan, elder, or tribe when appropriate. If you plan on sharing more than one story, include transitions between literary works to show thematic interrelationship(s). Interpretation of 2 or more characters, appropriate costuming, limited props, and dramatic movement may be incorporated.
A presentation from memory or limited notes in an indigenous language. A speech may be composed specifically for this category in the subject of your choosing or may be shared with one of the other categories. A significant portion of the speech must be in the native language, leaving time for translation.
Please staytuned, more event details on the horizon!
