30 years ago: Part of the Hozhoni Days Celebration, Ms. Cynthia Kent, was one of the speakers who spoke to the Native American students. Ms. Kent’s main topics were titles “Living in Two Worlds,” or “Is the Grass Really Greener on the Other Side,” or “There is No Place Like Home.” Cynthia encouraged the students to keep their “Indian” pride and not to expect jobs, scholarships, etc., just because you’re an INDIAN, but to go out and compete just like everybody else.
