Hi everyone! Ross is currently in the works of creating a Canoe Journey Study Abroad program! It is still in the planning phase, but we are surveying to see who would be interested and what people would like to see from a program like this. Please circulate far and wide!:
2014 Canoe Journey Study Abroad Catalyst
Dr. Million, Val, and myself are developing a study abroad program that will go on the 2014 Canoe Journey to Bella Bella, BC. We are trying to find out how many of you are interested and what programs you are involved with.
Currently, we are in the planning phase and don’t have specific details. Please share this catalyst survey widely and fill it out so that we can get a measure of interest and we will move forward from there. As an added note, this survey will close on May 31.
Thank you all for your time and attention,

Happy Monday Everyone! Here are my office hours for this week:
All students are welcome to attend!
Who: All are invited
What: A documentary about Native American boarding schools followed by a discussion held by the first ever and only woman principal in the 109 year history of Sherman Indian High school, Kathleen Silvas.
When: TONIGHT at 5:30
Where: Health Sciences Building T-530
Why: Native American boarding schools are a dark side of American history that is simply left out of our nation’s history books and our training. Under the founding idea of “kill the indian, save the man”, the US government was successful in completing wiping out Native American culture in a single generation! The same schools that were used to wipe culture are now being used to restore it. Sherman Indian High School is one of the biggest and oldest native boarding schools in the nation. Kathleen Silvas brings a unique perspective to modern day issues facing the native population today.
