Displays, presentations and discussions will take place throughout American Indian Heritage Day 2008.
Reno Charette, Native American studies program coordinator at MSU Billings and a member of the steering committee for the event, said Heritage Day is a perfect opportunity for the community to become more acquainted with a rich and diverse heritage.
Highlights this year include:
· Adult Health Fair sponsored by the Billings Clinic in the SUB Ballroom.
Middle school and high school students are encouraged to participate in a Passport Activity that enables them to enter a drawing to win gift baskets that include technology, MSU Billings items and cultural items.
Elders are invited to be honored guests to participate in all activities. A rest station exclusively for elders will be provided.
There will also be a performance by Night Hawks Drum Group from Lame Deer, a tribal flags exhibit from the Western Heritage Center and a workshop on American Indian storytelling for elementary students.
Registration is open at 8:45 a.m. in the Student Union Building. Opening ceremonies begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by a variety of activities and the opening of a vendor exhibit. Displays, presentations and discussions will take place on the SUB lawn, the Peaks to Plains Park and the MSU Billings Library.
