Take off your boots and hang up your guitar if you were planning to go to the dialogue session in Nashville, TN. It has been cancelled.
I guess the South Eastern United States isn’t important, or perhaps Ms. Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn has learned from prior DIALOGUES that not that many people are interested in watching her power point presentation.
In a convention of over 2,000 Indian educators in Milwaukee, only half a dozen showed for that dialogue session and four of them were sent by Haskell.
Maybe they should have stayed home and hashed out whatever innovative ideas they wanted to propose.
Of course we won’t know what they would have proposed because there is not a report/evaluation/follow-up to the spending of Haskell’s appropriated dollars on a Washington D.C. initiative.
Is this the brainchild of the same social worker who preaches communication to her post-secondary presidents? Too bad the Deputy Assistant Post Secondary Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn isn’t a communications major instead of a social worker….she might have asked them OR their boards how to get input into programs.
They might have suggested academic dialogues, not power point presentations to show the need for a realty certificate to train a GS 3 Realty Officer at Haskell Indian Nations University or General Education Diplomas at Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute.
Mr. Larry Echohawk this train is on a fast track to crashing if it isn’t stopped soon.
