LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Eastern Oregon University is celebrating Native American Heritage month with a campus scavenger hunt related to American Indian history.
Modeled after “The Amazing Race,” the hunt will keep students busy all month long in addition to several other activities being planned.
Start by packing a lunch and going on a free field trip to the Tamàstslikt Cultural Institute in Pendleton Friday, Nov. 1. The group leaves at 10 a.m. from the parking lot next to the tennis courts on campus and will return at 3 p.m. Sign-up at the Multicultural Center in the Hoke Union Building, Room 209.
The following Saturday, Nov. 9, American Indian students from Nixyaawii Community School, Pilot Rock and Pendleton high schools have been invited to EOU for a College Day and Native Basketball Night.
Students will spend the day hearing from Admissions, touring campus and meeting the coaches before watching the Mountaineer basketball game versus Multnomah University at 4 p.m. in Quinn Coliseum. EOU athletics and Rural and Native American Programs are providing complimentary tickets and post-game refreshments.
Be inspired to learn more about the Wounded Knee siege after watching the film “Thunderheart” Wednesday, Nov. 13. Val Kilmer stars in this “R” rated murder mystery based loosely on events that transpired in South Dakota in 1973. The free showing is from 6-8 p.m. in Huber Auditorium in Badgley Hall.
Friday, Nov. 15 is the day to “Rock Ur Mocs.” If you own a pair of traditional soft-soled moccasins, wear them to the Multicultural Center in Hoke or Rural and Native Programs in Inlow Hall, Room 112 J and have your photo taken.
Members of the Speel-Ya Native American Student Council will also sell Indian tacos from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Loso Hall lobby Tuesday, Nov. 19.
