Ethnic Studies Department students, alumni, and faculty attend pow wow at Barrio Station, San Diego.

Spring 2010

On Saturday, March 20, the USD Ethnic Studies Department was well-represented at the Census 2010 Pow Wow at Barrio Station. The powwow was a fun social gathering of Native community members and friends. The powwow organizers wanted to promote community awareness of the 2010 Census, as American Indians are persistently undercounted. Pictured below are faculty Dr. Gail Perez (3rd from left) and Dr. Michelle Jacob (5th from left), students Wynona Peters (4th from left), Kate Gordon (2nd from right), Roberta Garcia (far right), and alumna Christy Garcia (3rd from right).
