Native American Studies Professor Dr. Jerry Bread will talk about the program as well as the importance of a college education and Native culture.
Native American Student Association (NASA) President Cornelia Vann said the club selected Bread to speak at OCCC because of his knowledge and involvement in the Native community.
“He is credible, he has a Ph.D and is a lifelong educator,” she said. “He’s very involved in the Native American culture.”
She said Bread will discuss the three new emphases in the Native American studies program at OU: Indigenous Media and Arts, Tribal Governance and Policy, and Language, History and Cultural Knowledge.
“I believe that it’s very important for not just natives, but the general population to become aware of the people who are indigenous to this land,” she said.
