In celebration of Native American Heritage Month we are embracing the many aspects of native culture as connected with our campus community. There will be an opportunity for students to participate in a cultural conference experience. Members of the American Indian Science & Engineering Society will interact with student across the country as they focus on the recruitment, retention and networking in the STEM disciplines. Other opportunities include a Native American Culture Night filled with information about the rich Native heritage, traditional cuisine, and cultural entertainment . A film and discussion is scheduled to explore the dramatic changes in Indian education from boarding schools of the past to the more culturally-sensitive classrooms of today.
Language, art and music are also featured throughout November with a look at the destruction of Indigenous languages workshop , learning the spiritual significance of a Dreamcatcher its history and value, along with the discussion and exhibition of the Native Drum. As an outreach effort to the greater community the Native American Student Association will volunteer as activity facilitators for youth workshops at the North Carolina Museum of History State-Wide Native American Celebration. We hope you will join us in celebrating Native American Heritage. You are welcome to participate in any or all activities.
