Kickstarting the first of four podcast episodes, Taylor Notah (Diné) and Nicholet Deschine Parkhurst (Húŋkpapȟa & Diné) of Turning Points Magazine have a Zoom discussion with the fellow Native Sun Devil alumnae about our place-based connections on the Navajo Nation and why we chose Arizona State for our higher education journeys.
Stay tuned into the rest of this podcast episode series where we dive further into discussion with the representatives about navigating Zoom University during the pandemic, Indigenizing spaces, and the power of the Native vote and She Represents. Sko Devils!
