Congratulations are in store for Haskell Indian Nations University Acting President Venida Chenault.
We would like to list a few of Venida Chenault’s accomplishments in the short time that she has been back at Haskell:
Venida Chenault held an in service day ( In service days at a university? Not done. They are a part of grade school schedules though). last Friday that was hardly announced to the Haskell campus employees, some of them didn’t even receive a notice that it was being held, it wasn’t on Haskell’s announcements either.
Not that Haskell employees really cared anyway, only about 40 or 50 of the 250 employees Haskell has, showed up.
So maybe it was a secret in service, after all Venida’s little group of supporters were there sitting it in the front row and that was about it for attendees.
Venida shut down classes for an entire day at Haskell, so 40 maybe 50 employees could show up for what?… A Venida love fest as we heard it.
We do want to note that Ms.Wildhair was there, clapping every time Venida opened her mouth. You know Ms.Willdhair you get paid the same if you clap once, twice or a hundred times and all your clapping is getting annoying.
Let’s move on to sports. Seems Venida Chenault had herself announced at the Haskell’s Men’s Basketball game as Haskell Acting President and one person clapped….Ms.Wildhair must have been there. The way Venida is the treating men’s basketball team we are surprised they didn’t boo her right on out the door.
Venida has taken away the student senate building from the students and not given them access to their own activities funds.
Venida’s second in command over at housing seems to be nowhere to be found, so what is going on with that? Maybe Venida should call her sister Nadine Milne ( who works for Venida in housing) and ask her if she has seen or heard from him, since Venida apparently doesn’t know what is going on with your own employees. With his new shift 1-10p.m. you would think someone would see him or at least hear from him.
Venida should also check up on Dan Wildcat, apparently he is so overwhelmed with his new acting position that he can’t even answer employee e-mails!
Venida has taken the Indian Leader away from its last director and handed that over to “her adopted daughter”.
Venida has let Curtis close a half hour early ( how are the student athletics suppose to eat )? and allows the Curtis staff to treat the students horribly and feed them food that most people would not feed to their dogs.
Venida has tried to tear down every good program and change that Dr.Warner put in place for the Haskell students. Clearly showing she does not have Haskell students best interest at heart, just her own agenda.
By the way what’s going on with The Red Center?
Venida tried not take the Haskell Student Senate President to the AIHEC convention in Washington D.C. this year and replaced her with the vice president. We understand the student senate president is now going …but why is the student senate vice president going and who is paying for that? Since it is always the student senate president who attends.
Venida is allowing The American Indian Studies students (some, not all) to run all over campus posting flyers(lies) about the two new degree programs. Who is telling the A.I.S. students those lies? Surely not the same instructor who sleeps with some of them and then gives them A’s in her classes is it? AIS lost the vote and now they are trying to change it, the majority of the Haskell students want those two new BA programs, the vote will stand, the programs also. AIS will lose some students to those new BA programs and they know it…too bad.
Why would any group of students on any campus not want want new BA programs( could their instructors be telling them lies about the programs)? and want to protest against them ( a protest no one showed up for.. but nevertheless) and who was passing out all the students cell phone numbers texting them and telling them to show up to protest, who has all those private numbers?
Venida and her Native sister Miss.Wildhair have also let rumors spread that the current president of Haskell’s Student Senate is a supporter of Dr.Warner’s. So what if she is..last time we checked we still live in a free country. However, it goes to show us just how much Venida and Ms.Wildhair and the rest of their cronies are out to destroy anything or anyone connected to Dr.Warner even if those things or persons are in the best interest of the students.
Teachers like Shelly Bointy whose grant will expire in June. She wasn’t told to reapply for the same job she now holds… was she?? She is one of the best teachers that Haskell has and we are watching that situation very closely, actually we are watching for any harassment of Haskell employees( who are thought be be Dr.Warner supporters) by Vendia Chenault and her little gang, we wonder how the employees in the president’s office who worked under Dr.Warner are fairing? ..Can anyone say lawsuit??
Congratulations to Venida Chenault for almost single handily destroying Haskell Indian Nations University.
Larry Echohawk, Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn are you getting all of this? Venida Chenault is just an acting and a bad one at that. Why is she allowed to make any changes or hire any new employees? There needs to be a hiring freeze at Haskell.
Mr. Larry Echohawk you need to get rid of Venida Chenault and the rest of her little gang. She’s not making either you or Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn look very good.
