Native American Heritage Club

A new student organization is being formed at West Virginia University at Parkersburg for those students, faculty and staff interested exploring their Native American heritage. Interested parties contact Tim Beardsley (Pathfinder) by calling 424-8387 or by stopping in the Admissions and New Student Advising Center. Tim is Wyandotte, Delaware and Cherokee by lineage and has been given the native name of Pathfinder.
The mission of this club is to share information and history on Native peoples of the Mid-Ohio Valley as well as Native tribes of Ohio and West Virginia. We will organize over the summer with a goal of becoming an official student organization Fall 2010.
Fall Semester is now upon us and it is time to organize. Stop in the Student Welcome Center if you are curious or for more information.
