ISU alumna [and library student assistant in Systems] Kristin Monts, who teaches eighth grade writing in the Navajo Nation in Pinion, Arizona, is bringing some of her students to experience Indiana and Indiana State. As part of that experience, the students will expose ISU students to their culture at 3:30 p.m. April 28 in the Cunningham Memorial Library’s Events Area.
Students will discuss Navajo culture and community and education. Students also will discuss the kinaalda, a coming-of-age ceremony for girls, the life of a Navajo boy as well as the jingle dress.
The presentation is free and open to the community.
