Native American Month at MSU

Posted: Updated:

A Minot State University Native American Cultural Awareness club is shedding light on Native American Culture this November through a lineup of events.

Today, North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission Executive Director, Scott Davis, made an prance at the University.

Davis spoke on a variety of themes including education, leadership, native american identity, government and how those areas have changed throughout the years.

He says the Native Americans have made large gains in areas of education throughout the years and he's happy to speak on that at an institution he attended in the early 90s.

(Scott Davis, ND Indian Affairs Executive Director)"Back then we had a large number of Native Americans. I was a student athlete here at that time running cross country and track. That's obviously probably had it's changes over decades here, but, yeah, there's a significant number of Native Americans here that attend Minot State, so it's really good to be here and share my thoughts with them today."

Tomorrow, the events begin at 9:00 on the third floor of the student center with a panel discussion on Native American culture.
