University to Host Events in Recognition of Native American Heritage Month

Ferris State University is recognizing Native American Heritage Month with opportunities for students to learn about Native American history and traditions.

The celebration is co-sponsored by the Circle of Tribal Nations, the Office of Multicultural Student Services, the Social Sciences department and the Office of International Education.
