Shawnee State University’s Office of Intercultural Student Belonging is hosting speaker Ty Smith at 6 p.m. on Nov. 15 in the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.

Smith works as a project director with the Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio (NAICCO). This organization is “devoted to preserving and restoring balance in the lives of Native Americans through traditional, cultural, educational, family, community, and wellness driven values and initiatives,” according to its website.

The goal for Smith’s presentation this week at SSU is to review Native American cuisine, land back issues, along with NAICCO’s mission and vision.

Everyone is welcome to attend and learn from the experience.
