NSU to host American Indian Heritage Month events
TAHLEQUAH – The Northeastern State University American Indian Heritage Committee has released its full schedule of events celebrating American Indian Heritage Month in November.
All events are free and open to the public to attend.
Events include the Indigenous Wellness Series: QPR Training, Storytelling sponsored by the NSU American Indian Science and Engineering Society, films, scholarly presentations by lawyer Patti Ghezzi (related to the Murphy Case in the U.S. Supreme Court) and Dr. Delores Bigfoot, the Adoption and Foster Care Panel discussion and the Indigenous Arts Education Series co-sponsored by the OK Arts Council.
A full list of events and co-sponsors can be found at cts.nsuok.edu and on the NSU Center for Tribal Studies Facebook page.
“We are most excited about the Indigenous Arts Education Series sponsored by the OK Arts Council, as the grant funding makes it possible to provide hands-on training opportunities for our students and community members,” Sara Barnett, Center for Tribal Studies director and AIHC Chairwoman, said.
The three events include a moccasin workshop with local Cherokee Matt Anderson, a beadwork workshop with Lakota artist Eric LaDeaux and a copper/metalwork class with Sam Watts Scott, also Cherokee. Supplies and instruction will be provided and participants will take their final products home.
Individuals are required to call in to RSVP and reserve a space for these three events.
