Help Tribal College Journal Honor Native American Warriors on Veteran’s Day and BeyondNov 10th, 2015 | By tcj | Category: Online TC News, Tribal College News, Web Exclusive
The Tribal College Journal is seeking American Indians currently serving in the Armed Forces who want to continue their ties with their culture and with education while away from home. Tribal College Journal is a quarterly magazine published by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, an organization of 37 tribal colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. It focuses upon new models for Native American higher education.
During the month of November, TCJ is appealing to its readers to honor the sacrifices of American Indian soldiers and their families by donating subscriptions. There is a long history of Indian people serving in all branches of the Armed Forces, starting with the American Revolution. Recent publicity has honored the work of the Navajo code talkers in World War II, but during both world wars, American Indian code talkers helped bring victory by using various languages, including Choctaw, Comanche, Lakota, Crow, or Navajo words.
TCJ would like to receive the names and mailing addresses of the American Indian soldiers as soon as possible. Subscriptions will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Donations and subscription requests can be made online by visiting www.tribalcollegejournal.org or sent to TCJ-Native Warriors, P.O. Box 720, Mancos CO 81328.
