The monthly Guild meeting’s featured speaker for April is Evangeline Parsons-Yazzie. Ms. Parsons-Yazzie is originally from Hardrock, AZ on the Navajo Reservation, and a Professor Emerita at Northern Arizona University. Her lecture will focus on the effect the boarding schools had on American Indian people and is composed of two parts: the first is a historical overview; and the second focuses upon the voices of people who were educated in the early boarding school years (1922 to 1933), the tumultuous years (1935-1945), and more recent years (1955-1971); and the effect forced education had on parents who were left behind.
The public is welcome to attend the meeting to learn more about the Guild and to hear the speaker.
