|President Obama declares November American Indian Heritage month|
U.S. President Barack Obama recently proclaimed the month of November as American Indian Heritage month. To help us recognize and celebrate, we encourage campus community members to visit the American Indian Center (315 Princeton Street) to meet the staff, learn more about the valuable programming provided, mingle with our students who represent many different tribal nations and take a tour of the facility.
Staff at the American Indian Center would be happy to show visitors the marvelous collection of Indian art displayed in the center. The UND Art department has collaborated with other departments and individuals to publish a book of UND’s Indian art collection that will be available soon. The amount and variety of American Indian artwork housed across the UND campus may surprise you and is very impressive.
We hope to see an increase in visitor traffic throughout American Indian Heritage Month; however, if you don’t make it over for a visit and/or tour in the coming weeks, please know that our outstanding student support services are open to all UND students and guests are always welcome.
