Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) invites community members to come to a special potluck at the Community Center featuring speaker Joseph H. Suina on Thursday, April 12, at 6 p.m.
Suina is a professor emeritus at the University of New Mexico’s College of Education, former governor of Cochiti Pueblo, and former director of the Institute for American Indian Education. He has devoted much of his career to assessing student learning and developing training programs for educators who teach American Indian students. Currently a member of the Cochiti Pueblo tribal council, Suina is also president and chief executive officer of the Cochiti Community Development Corporation and chair of the Cochiti Language Revival Committee. He joined Crow Canyon’s Native American Advisory Group in 2008 and became a member of the Board of Trustees in 2009. His topic is “Modern Pueblo Ties to the Past.”
CRIA will provide coffee, water and soft drinks. Anyone who wants to help with setup should arrive around 5:30 p.m. If anyone can stay and help clean and put away the tables, it is much appreciated.
CRIA operates in partnership with the USDA Forest Service and the San Juan National Forest. For the 2012 Chimney Rock Calendar of events, view the CRIA website at www.chimneyrockco.org, or call 731-7133.
