Join us for a special Native American Heritage Month talk enhanced with images from the presenters personal collection.  This talk is presented by Wayne Stark, Director of Workforce Development for the Center for Liberal Arts Student Success (CLASS) and Advisor for the Association of Native American Students.  Wayne has researched the Mattaponi and Pamunkey Indians in Virginia for his Master’s thesis as part of his graduate program in History at George Mason University. He also immersed himself in the 19th century American West while pursuing doctoral studies at the University of Kansas. Wayne has an extensive collection of Southwestern native arts and crafts including Navajo rugs and jewelry, Katsinas, and pottery from all 19 New Mexico pueblos, as well as the Hopi Pueblos in Arizona. In addition his collection includes ceramics from the Papago (Tohono O'odham) and Maricopa (Piipaash) tribes.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about all our Native American Heritage Month events and the Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs, please contact us at 937-775-2798, visit our website at or stop by the center in 154 Millett Hall.
