Santa Fe Community College is celebrating Native American Heritage Month.

November is Native American Heritage Month.

The activities at Santa Fe Community College began on Nov. 19  with a 10 a.m. Opening Ceremony and traditional hoop dance groups in the Campus Center.

11 a.m.: Guest speaker A.J. Goldman  presented  his project with Lucia Palmero titled UNCOVERING America. Activities continued to 1:30 p.m. in the Campus Center.

Native American Heritage Month activities continue on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Tues. Nov. 27, 11 a.m. The movie <em>Wind River</em> will be shown in the Lecture Room. The film centers on the disappearance of an indigenous woman.

Tues. Nov. 27, 1 p.m. Join everyone in the Courtyard for The Red Sand Project.  The organization encourages public art (sometimes sidewalk) projects that incorporate red sand to raise awareness about human trafficking. The participatory installations help create dialog and lead people to question, connect and take action against vulnerabilities that can lead to human trafficking and exploitation.

A disproportionate number of girls and women from Native communities have disappeared as the result of exploitation and violence. See this recent story by the Associated Press, “Study: Weak reporting on missing, murdered Native women.”</a>
