Healing Ceremony

As we approach Native American Heritage Month in November, we acknowledge the first people of these lands and celebrate the Dakota, Ojibwe, and other Native peoples who continue to make their home in this region—contemporary leaders in rebuilding Native Nations and reclaiming Indigenous lifeways. Our third annual fall campus gathering to support our Native American community and campus for healing, resiliency, and strength will be held on Saturday, October 30.
This fall we are honored to have Jerry Dearly, Lakota, Pine Ridge, as our cultural leader and guide for the ceremony, and grateful also to have Dawn Chase, Upper Sioux Community, assisting with preparations and the ceremony.
