Bead work

This weeks meeting will be a beading and craft night. We will provide the craft supplies just bring yourself and some creative ideas. In the past we have made bracelets, necklaces, pouches, etc. If you can think of it we can try to help you make it. It will be a fun casual night so bring a friend! Can't wait to see you there!

Please email Madison Eagle, Vice President, if you have any questions.
Beading Night

We are working on organizing a beading night. We usually try to have these a few times a semester but many of you have expressed interest in having them more often. We work on craft projects at these events. These include making necklaces, bracelets, earrings, tobacco pouches, hair pins, shawls, and pretty much anything else you can think of. If you would like to participate in these beading nights with us please fill out this doodle so we know what time works best for everyone.

If you have any questions or would like more information please email Diana Saintignon.
Introducing Professor Daniel Rivers!
Daniel Rivers

We are happy to introduce one of the newest additions to the American Indian Studies Program here at The Ohio State University. Daniel Rivers is a historian of LGBT communities in the twentieth century, Native American history, the family and sexuality, and U.S. social protest movements. His research and writing interests include Choctaw women's history and U.S. LGBT history. Professor Rivers is of Choctaw and Chickasaw descent and is an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. He received his PhD in history from Stanford University, and his book, Radical Relations: Lesbian Mothers, Gay Fathers, and their Children in the United States since the Second World War, was published by the University of North Carolina Press in August of 2013. His publications also include articles on the history of gay and lesbian custody cases and the practice of queer oral history.

We Want to Know What You Think!
We would like to invite people to fill out this quick survey. We want to know what our members and readers of this newsletter think about our organization and services.

Thank you so much for your help!

You are welcome to all MCC events and hope you will plan to attend many of them throughout the year. Please feel free to drop by the MCC to connect with me and other students. We want you to have the best experience possible during your time at The Ohio State University.
