Monday, March 10, 2014 – March Music Maker: Keith Secola
It might be frybread, maybe even being bit by a bat. Then again, it could also be a beloved NDN car. Whatever the reason, many people can't get enough of Anishinabe recording artist Keith Secola. His unique sound is back with more songs to help you realize "Life is Grand," which is also the title of his latest musical exploration of intoxicating lyrics and rhythms. We invite you to join us as we visit with our March Music Maker, Keith Secola.
Tuesday, March 11, 2014 – VAWA, One Year Later
It's been just over a year since the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was reauthorized by Congress and signed into law by President Obama. The new law includes provisions to allow tribal governments to prosecute non-Native sexual assault and domestic violence offenders. The reauthorization was celebrated a year ago, but is it making a real difference for Native women? Join us as we look back and discuss the progress and challenges as the law is implemented across Native America.
Wednesday, March 12, 2014 – Keep Calm, Mush On!
Mushers in Alaska are making their way toward Nome this week as they compete in the 2014 Iditarod dogsled race. The race started in 1973 and has evolved over the years. Join us as we learn more about the history of the Iditarod. We'll also get updates on this year's frontrunners and hear about the impact of the race on Alaska Native villages.
Thursday, March 13, 2014 – Summer Programs for Kids
Summer may seem like a long way off, but programs for kids are already filling up. Join us as we explore summer camps, internships and other fun programs available for Native kids this year. What would you like your children, grandchildren or nieces and nephews to do this summer? How difficult is it to find summer childcare in your area? Join us for leads on programs and share your tips for keeping kids safe and busy when they're out of school during the summer months!
Friday, March 14, 2014 –Testing and Stress
Tests can make even the most confident student a little nervous. Is testing causing extra stress for young people in your life? The College Board recently announced that the SAT college admission test will have significant changes beginning next year. Those changes include scoring and the essay will now be optional instead of required. Do these changes matter to you or a young person in your family? How can we better support students as they take on challenging tests?
