Inaugural pow wow in Bloomington March 28-29
Most are unaware that there are 554 American Indian tribes in the U.S. and at least 40,000 Hoosiers of American Indian descent. Awareness, as well as remembrance and renewal, are some of the objectives of IU anthropologist Wesley Thomas, a Navajo, and the new First Nations of Indiana University organization, which are planning a pow wow later this month.

‘Sharing the Learning Space’
Join colleagues from member institutions around the state April 3 in Bloomington for an IHETS conference on online learning, featuring MERLOT's Edward Cooper.

Fostering the arts and humanities
IU has awarded 27 research grants to scholars and practitioners on five IU campuses through an initiative launched during the last academic year.

IU anthropologist Wesley Thomas (at left), a Navajo, says the pow wow in Bloomington this month will be a pan-Indian event that is at once sacred and social, bringing cultural awareness to the general public and dispelling stereotypes that still exist regarding American Indians. There are 554 different American Indian tribes in the United States and 40,000 Hoosiers of American Indian descent. A second pow wow April 27-28, sponsored by the American Indian Council, is planned in Boone County. Read more.

Women and history
Are men from Mars and women from Venus when it comes to communication techniques? Has the Internet become the great equalizer between the sexes, providing equal opportunity communication environments? The answers are yes and no. While some thought the Internet of the last two decades would be a “great civil libertarian experiment,” gender disparity in online contexts are very evident, says IU information scientist Susan Herring. Read about Herring’s research and other gender-related stories as a launch to the month of March, Women’s History Month.
