Learning to become ‘Change Agents’
30 July 2009


NATIVE VIEW: Dr. Harriett Skye shared her perspective on multiculturalism with a group of individuals from ten Midwestern states attending a leadership seminar for employees of the Extension Service. The June 26 session at United Tribes was part of an effort to improve cultural competency about Native American culture. The visit was part of a National Extension Leadership Development program titled: “Leading in a Diverse World.” The training also included discussion about such topics as sovereignty, tribal colleges and their land grant status, and successful methods for partnering with tribes and tribal colleges. The group also toured Standing Rock and visited Sitting Bull College.
