24 May 2011
SPECIAL RECOGNITION: One of the college’s most beloved leaders and educators, Dr. Harriett Skye, is presented with a Pendleton blanket by students Nathan Dunn, left, and David One Horn as part of an honoring May 5 during the United Tribes Student Awards Program. The college’s Vice President of Inter-Tribal Programs plans to retire after a long, loyal and distinguished service to the college following the end of the 2010-11 academic year. She first came to United Tribes in 1974 to direct the college’s Office of Public Information. As a life-long learner, she earned a Master’s Degree at New York University and a Ph.D. in ethnic studies at the University of California-Berkeley. Her plans include a move to California to be close to family, keeping tabs on progress at United Tribes, and staying in touch with friends and relatives at Standing Rock and elsewhere. Dr. Skye’s friendly presence on campus will be missed by those who love her, along with her wise counsel, warm-hearted personality and knack for Indian humor.
