  • More state funding coming to Navajo
    June 20, 2013
    Navajo Times - Another major victory in the budget approved by the state is that, for the first time, Navajo Technical College will be getting state support. "Since opening its two Arizona campuses in 2006, Navajo Technical College has shown retention and graduation rates that far exceed the national average and its students are entering the workforce with high-demand skills like computer science and engineering," said Jackson. The state legislature agreed to appropriate $850,000 a year to help NTC to improve its Chinle campus. That is in addition to the $1.75 million that goes annually to Diné College.
  • 'Saving the planet with indigenous knowledge'
    June 19, 2013
    I was thinking about the disconnection between technological hope and the economic division of humanity while recently listening to a talk by Daniel Wildcat. Wildcat, a Yuchi member of the Muscogee nation of Oklahoma, is a professor at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kan., and author of “Red Alert! Saving the Planet with Indigenous Knowledge” (Fulcrum 2009). Though there were hundreds in the audience, I say “talk” and not “lecture” because Wildcat practiced a sort of rhetoric that circled around keywords, accumulating meaning, rather than succinctly telling the audience what he knows that he wants us to know. He practiced, in fact, what he described as the response of Indian people to a meeting with whites who propose to help them: “We don’t care what you know until we know you care.”

  • New art meets old culture at Red Cloud
    June 19, 2013

"There's so much more to it," said Mary Bordeaux of The Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School near Pine Ridge. "Contemporary Native art just isn't long hair, feathers and sunsets."

  • Lummi Food Sovereignty Gets a Big Boost
    June 14, 2013
    Food sovereignty is a topic that is discussed more and more in Indian Country these days. Tribal leaders and members are realizing that they can’t be completely sovereign if they rely on outside sources for their food. That idea has prompted Northwest Indian College’s (NWIC) Cooperative Extension Department to implement food sovereignty programs at two of its reservation sites: Muckleshoot and Lummi. - See more at:
