Native American Awareness Week March 13th - 17th, 2017.

For the past 27 years each Spring Semester, LCSC hosts Native American Awareness Week, which is designed for the general public, LCSC students, faculty, and staff. During NAAW, activities begin Tuesday with a mini powwow and all the area 4th grade classes are invited. Wednesday and Thursday feature a variety of speakers addressing subjects such as tribal sovereignty, health issues, and Indian education. On Thursday evening there is a friendship banquet. The friendship Banquet is the time when the NAMSS recognizes all the Native American students who received scholarships for the year but also the Native American students select an elder for a Life Time Achievement Award. The week ends with a powwow on Friday evening.
