Six students along with NICC faculty attended the 33rd Annual American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) Spring Conference in Billings, Montana, March 16 through Tuesday, March 18. The students were: Tamara Crees, Falon Tor-rez, Sarah Zavala, Marilyn Black-Hawk, Tiffany Wolfe, and Adria-na Hoffman.
The students are encouraged to participate and represent NICC through various academic and non-academic competitions. NICC students competed in speech, science bowl, and improv. Tiffany Wolfe did a wonderful speech about meth, Sarah Zavala did a speech on the Dakota 38 and a city law allowing settlers to receive $200 for a Indian scalp...a law that is still in effect to this day. Tamara did a speech on Native American history and how it is not taught to school age students. NICC did win the best improv/comedy for AIHEC for a improv play called "Don't Smoke at Bingo."
The big news from AIHEC is that Sarah Zavala was elected historian for the AIHEC Student Congress.
