Countdown to end of HEEF Alumni Challenge

Are you a Hopi alum? If so, please consider donating to this year’s Hopi Education Endowment Fund Alumni Challenge. This is a great opportunity to give back to HEEF and further opportunities for other Hopi students. As a non-gaming nation, we have to depend on other ways to raise funds for our students. The Alumni Challenge is one of those ways. As of today, HEEF has received $2, 218 of its $6,000 goal. There is still time to donate. Click here for more information. The Alumni Challenge ends this Friday November 18. Let’s do what we can to ensure educational opportunities for our people!

Kwakwha,

Hopi Student Invitation: ESA SEEDS leadership meeting

To all Hopi students:

This invitation is open to Hopi students (high school, undergrad, graduate, or those enrolled in any institution on or near the Colorado Plateau). This leadership meeting is seeking Hopi student representatives that have a desire and interest in agriculture as well as “students interested in sustainability, environmental science, and ecology will benefit a great deal from this meeting; it is a wonderful group of positive students.”Below is an invitation for the Ecological Society of America’s SEEDS western leadership meeting. Attached is the agenda.  We are hoping to serve student representatives of the Hopi Nation to bring greater diversity into our meeting.

INVITATION

You are invited to the Ecological Society of America’s SEEDS western leadership meeting in Flagstaff, AZ from Thursday, April 7 (late afternoon arrival) to Sunday, April 10 (morning departure).  The leadership meeting theme is “Ecological Sustainability in our Nation’s West”.  SEEDS students and advisors in California and the Colorado Plateau are welcome to participate, with all expenses covered by the SEEDS program (transportation, housing, meals). If you would like to participate in this meeting, please reply to Melissa Armstrong at Melissa@esa.org by April 4.

Participants will be interacting with ESA Vice President Dr. Laura Huenneke, experts in sustainability and action such as Black Mesa Water Coalition, Grand Canyon Trust, and the Wilderness Society, and of course from one another!  We will be taking a half day field trip to nearby San Francisco Peaks (topping out at 12,000 feet elevation), to highlight a high-profile example of sustainability efforts and stakeholders, in addition to the dramatic elevational gradients of local ecosystems.

Forty students will participate in the meeting.  The format of the meeting is a workshop series for the whole group in addition to breakout groups focusing on specific topics.  Students will work collaboratively within the breakout group of their choice before, during, and after the leadership meeting to produce a joint product of the meeting.  Breakout group descriptions will be provided before the meeting so students can select the group most interesting to them.

We hope you will be able to participate in our SEEDS western leadership meeting where we will be thinking about promoting sustainable communities and the role of students in leading these efforts.  Please join us to help make positive and meaningful contributions to the ecological sustainability.

Sincerely,

Melissa
