Event canceled: NWIC celebrates MLK Jr.

The event below is canceled due to inclement weather.

“Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better,” Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK Jr.’s birthday will be celebrated a couple of days late at Northwest Indian College (NWIC).

On Jan. 17, door prizes will be offered and pizza will be served when NWIC’s Indigenous Service Learning Center honors King’s life with a free event that will include a variety of speakers from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Log Building on main campus.

“Our focus in this event is economic justice, and each of our presenters’ offers a unique perspective on this subject,” said Meghan McCormick, Indigenous Service Learning Center employee. 

The event will include presentations, including: Alleviating Poverty in Tribal Communities; Access to Healthy Food, Our Human Right; Preserving our Native Economy; and The Effects of the Civil Rights Movement in Indian Country.

There will also be an “I Have a Dream” open mic that was organized and will be hosted by NWIC students.

“This will be a chance for everyone to share their stories and ideas,” McCormick said.
