NSU Center for Tribal Studies hosts Annual Silent Auction and Luncheon Fundraiser- March 10

(Tahlequah, Oklahoma) -- In support of its rich, cultural heritage and quality programming, the Northeastern State University Center for Tribal Studies and the American Indian Heritage Committee will host the Annual Silent Auction and Luncheon Fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 10 in the University Center Ballroom.

Tickets for the traditional meal can be purchased on site for $10; lunch will be served beginning at 11:30 a.m. Individuals can come and browse and bid on silent auction items from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

NSU takes great pride in its history and connection to American Indian education. Once dedicated to the education of Cherokee women, the institution now enrolls more than 2,800 American Indian students. With this, comes a greater responsibility to provide opportunities for cultural enrichment, for both the students and the greater Tahlequah community.

Each year, the Center for Tribal Studies works in collaboration with offices such as the Center for Women’s Studies, the Sequoyah Institute and Diversity and Inclusion to offer programming related to our American Indian culture. These events include the Annual Symposium on the American Indian and a series of events in November in honor of American Indian Heritage Month.

For more information on upcoming programming, including the symposium which runs April 17-22, 2017, contact the Center for Tribal Studies at 918-444-4350 or tribalstudies@nsuok.edu.
