All Penn State Indigenous students, faculty, and staff are invited to a potluck dinner November 21 from 5:30-7:30PM in 124 Sparks Building.

Tawnshi! Ya'at eeh! Osiyo! Hello!

The Penn State Native Council invites you, if you are an Indigenous person in and around Penn State, to come and break bread––please bring a snack to share!

Though we come from many nations, our hope is to unite and build a strong community. Together we hope to achieve several goals for the near future, including, but not limited to:

  • An Indigenous speaker series next year
  • The eventual creation of an Indigenous studies minor/program
  • Explicit recruitment of Indigenous students with another Indigenous hire
  • A university-wide creation of a territory acknowledgment and list of protocols for all public events and to appear on their website/public materials

We hope to use this potluck as a venue to meet and greet each other with good faith and respect.

Please join us anytime between 5:30-7:30 pm in 124 Sparks Building on November 21, 2019!

The Pennsylvania State University occupies the ancestral and contemporary lands of the Erie, Lenape, Shawnee, and Susquehannock as well as the Haudenosaunee Confederacy including the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, and Seneca peoples.
