November is Native American Heritage Month. Here is your Native American History fact of the day. 

 I’m Mia White Bull, and I”m Oglala Lakota , and I’m LaDeja Bradford, and I’m Omaha. Susan La Flesche Picotte was born on the Omaha reservation in northeastern Nebraska on June 17, 1865. She became the first Native American to earn a medical degree.

In 1886, La Flesche attended the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. In 1889, she graduated with a medical degree, not only one year early but first in her class of thirty-six members as well.

Happy Native American Heritage Month from Native American Caucus

Also, stop by the library and see our display of the bust of Ponca Chief Standing Bear by artist Benjamin Victor in honor of National Native American Heritage month! 


And now a message from Stand In For Lincoln

“Hi My Name is Jack Genoways and this is Carol Flora

We are starting a new club, which will begin today after school at 3:15 in room 104.  Our group is called Stand In For Lincoln. Stand In for Lincoln is a grassroots organization in Lincoln, Nebraska that peaceful advocates for human rights on local, national, and international levels.  

Our hope for our Youth Chapter is to encourage students to develop a lens of love for all people, regardless of where a person might come from, we will think about immigration issues more critically, and create a vision on how we can continue our work to welcome ALL students to our building.  This group will do FUN and ACTION-ORIENTED activities to advocate for change!
