The Big Read: Louise Erdrich’s Native Literature classic “Love Medicine” coming to a library near you!

Exhibit open September 27 – October 24, 2013
Exhibit located at Brown University’s Rockefeller Library, 10 Prospect St, Providence. See the Library’s website for hours. Visitors without Brown ID will be admitted to view the exhibit. Please be prepared to present a valid photo ID and give the exhibit’s name.
Join us in reading Louise Erdrich’s Love Medicine for the 2013-2014 Big Read in Rhode Island, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, hosted in 2013-2014 in Rhode Island by the Tomaquag Museum. This exhibit focuses on stories that can be told about objects from Ojibwe country, such as beaded bandolier bags and birch bark baskets, from the collection of the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology at Brown University. It highlights the role that objects play in establishing and maintaining identity and relationships over time and across space, foregrounding connections among tribes across the woodland regions of North America, and between American Indian and non-Indian communities. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. http://www.NEABigRead.org

Six Places to Find College Scholarship for Native Students

Alan

This is an article in Indian Country Today listing six options to look into if you are thinking about how to pay for college. To give you a rough idea, applying for scholarships can be just as financially worth the effort as getting a job which takes your time, energy, and focus away from your class studies. In fact, many native students are capable of going to school with the majority of their tuition coming from scholarships if you are diligent, organized, on-time, and most of all, you apply! This can make all the difference when you go to school, no matter where it is. Good luck!
