American Indian Community Survey

Posted on December 4th, 2012 | Leave a comment


December, 2012

Dear Tribal Community Leaders,

We, at the American Indian Studies Department, are excited to share with you our tribal community survey, which we hope you will take a few minutes to complete. Your response(s) will be completely confidential and will not be analyzed on an individual basis. Enclosed is a hard copy for your individual use. This cannot be copied, unfortunately, due to the sensitivity of the machine that reads results at the college.

We are delivering surveys for you to share. Please consider including library patrons, parents, co-tribal employees, cultural committees, and any other interested community members.  If you have a public room or a library or children’s program, perhaps you could share survey forms in those places, along with a collection box and a note to encourage tribal members to complete the survey.

The survey is also accessible on-line with directions on how to open and submit the document. This is the link:

Collection of the hard copies and on-line forms will be around the first of the year, 2013.

Please contact the American Indian Studies Department (760-744-1150, ext. 2425) or Naida Garcia at the satellite center (760-742-1121) if you have any questions.

Karuk Youth Leadership Council, 2012

Posted on May 25th, 2012 | Leave a comment

Greetings all,

Here is an exciting summer opportunity that could certainly inspire some Native students!  Please read and share with others.

Prof. Lechusza Aquallo

Ayukîi, Greetings,
The Karuk Youth Leadership Council (Skyler McNeal, Krista Reynolds, Summer Goodwin, Sinéad Talley, Geena Talley, Jared Wilder, David Burlew, and Jolie Super) has been invited to Washington D.C. from May 31st to June 2nd to visit the White House and attend a function related to Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move! In Indian Country ” program; in part because an article by Maymi Preston-Donahue about one of our activities, a 12-mile run from Independence to Happy Camp with Karuk Tribal Council member Crispen McAllister, was recently recognized by the Obama Native News Contest.   Maymi also nominated Crispen as a White House Let’s Move! Champion of Change.  Of course, we are all thrilled by this exciting news.
The Karuk Youth Council, Tribal Council, Diabetes program, TANF, TERO, and others have raised enough to pay for the airfare and hotels in Washington, D.C.  We are now trying to raise funds to cover food, ground transportation and a couple of hotel rooms in Medford for the Youth Leadership Council’s trip to the White House.  Any support you can provide will be greatly appreciated by us all.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and the youth are looking forward to the opportunity to positively represent our tribe in our nation’s capital.  No matter what you decide, thank you for your consideration.
And, don’t miss the bake sale/hamburgers/hot dog sale/snow cones/car wash this weekend at McLaughlin & Sons in Orleans!
Yoôtva, Thank you!
