November is Native American/ American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month.
The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people.
Here is what the CCEI has planned for the month. More information will come soon!
Celebrating Indigenous Peoples'
Each Monday and Friday throughout November, the CCEI will be highlighting Indigenous folks on the Student Life Instagram (@clustudentlife)
On Wednesday, November 11th at 11AM we will be dropping the link for the Google form in this event description to sign up for a special curated box for Native American/American Indian & Alaska Native Heritage Month! We will feature items from The NTVS, Honyoutink, 8th Generation, Tanka, and more!
The boxes are limited to the first 30 students to sign up on the Google form, so you will want to add this to your calendar!
Playlist in the Park
Join the CCEI in Kingsmen Park to listen to music showcasing Indigenous artists and be one of the first 20 students to receive a free lunch! Date and time TBD.
