11/30/2021 - Beyond Native American History Month Panel
I started the Native American Gathering in 2015 as a way to foster a sense of belonging for students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. At the inaugural Native American Gathering (2015), we had about 50 people attend. By the second year (2016), we had about 1,000 people in attendance. For the third year (2017), we recorded 1,193 people in attendance. Below are some newspaper articles about the importance, purpose, and hope for the Native American Gathering.
