Statement of Purpose
The Red Nations Student Association was formed in 1996. Its mission is to focus
on Native American
culture and beliefs. The Red Nations Student Association meets every Wednesday at
12:30 in the Multicultural Room, Bldg. 17, Room 13. We the Red Nations Student Association
are committed to fulfilling the mission of our ancestors:
- To carry on and learn about our traditional ways of life, we would like
- to teach others about our culture
- to keep it as strong as the river.
A sampling of events we have done and plan to continue:
- Monthly Indian taco sales.
- We traveled to Portland for a leadership conference.
- In spring of 2006 active members were invited to attend the Students of Color conference
- Our largest event is the Pow Wow which is held in the spring. Our Pow Wow is the
3rd largest in Washington state. Drummers and dancers come from all over the Northwest
to participate and celebrate our culture. On this day, we have a community meal
which we share with all those attending the Pow Wow. View the video:
