SCC to host Native American Heritage Month events in November

A performance by Painted Sky Northstar dance company during the 2012 Native American Heritage Month event series.


Native Visions
10-11:20 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19
A blend of entertainment and education, this performance by Native Visions is reenacted by two performers and supported by video introductions. The segments highlight the lives of important Native Americans who have shaped our country and are deserving of recognition for their achievements.

“Kind Hearted Women”
All day Monday-Friday, Nov. 18-22
In a special two-part series, acclaimed filmmaker David Sutherland creates an unforgettable portrait of Robin Charboneau, a 32-year-old divorced single mother, and Oglala Sioux women living on North Dakota’s Spirit Lake Reservation. Sutherland follows Robin over three years as she struggles to raise her two children, further her education and heal herself from the wounds of sexual abuse she suffered as a child.

Due to the length of the documentary, “Kind Hearted Women” will run in the Social Science Building Lounge in a continuous loop. 

The Real Story of the First Thanksgiving
11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20
Enjoy traditional Thanksgiving (with recipes from Plymouth Rock) and learn what really happened at the first Thanksgiving. Cost is $5 or five canned food items. All proceeds will benefit a local food pantry. This event will take place in the Plaza Bistro.
