Indigenous Peoples Club visits legislature
Members of SFCC’s Indigenous Peoples Club and SFCC college officials met with Sen. Benny Shendo, D-Jemez Pueblo, at the Roundhouse on Feb. 8. They asked for his endorsement as SFCC seeks to become a Native American Serving Institution. The college will host a major event with New Mexico tribes on May 28 at the college that will address that issue.
All of the participants received a certificate recognizing their participation on American Indian Day.
