They all have in common to have a Cherokee actor, West (Wesley) Studi, but do you know he is a veteran of Vietnam?
Wes was born in 1947 in Nofire Hollow, in Northeastern Oklahoma, the eldest son of a ranch hand. He spoke only his native Cherokee until he was 5, when he was enrolled in the Murrell Home to attend public school. He later attended the Chilocco Indian Boarding School in Northern Oklahoma, where he remained through high school graduation. Yet, unlike many fellow Native American students, he never forgot his language.
in 1967, Studi was drafted into the Army and was trained as an infantryman. After training he served at Fort Benning where he volunteered to go to Vietnam. When he arrived in Vietnam he was assigned to the 9th Infantry Division in the Mekong Delta.
Vanessa Goodthunder plans to open an immersion school this June in Minnesota, where only five Dakota first-language speakers remain. Funding and staffing challenges often face such schools, but Ms. Goodthunder is determined to 'help heal historical trauma.'
Apprentices and staff from the Dakota Studies Department recently completed a research poster on Traditional Dakota Design elements. It is hoped that this information will inspire a revitalization of the knowledge of traditional Dakota art forms and designs. This project was made possible by the American Indian College Fund Restoration and Preservation of Traditional Native Art Forms and Knowledge Grant. A limited number of the printed posters will be available at Sisseton Wahpeton College. Wopida ota to all that helped and participated!
