Evangeline Parsons-Yazzie to Speak at April Guild Meeting

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.
