OISS and OMA Celebrate Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month

November 22, 2017 12:45 PM

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving event yesterday and we were happy to have President Fitts join us for some of the fun.  The Annual "Pot Luck" Thanksgiving Dinner is sponsored by The Office for International Students and Scholars and the Office of Multicultural Affairs and has been a tradition for over 20 years.  The dinner began as a means to provide a place for those international students who do not have a place to go for a Thanksgiving Dinner or who have never experienced an American Thanksgiving tradition and has since expanded to include any interested Tulanian who wishes to share in the experience of Thanksgiving with the Tulane community.  Each year over 500 students faculty and staff participate in the event.  This year we featured a tribute to Native Americans in celebration of Native American Indian Heritage Month.  There was a special musical and storytelling performance by Grayhawk Perkins and the Grayhawk Band.
