Native American Women's Circle

The Native American Women's Circle was created to enhance social, group, individual, and cultural support for the women of the Native American Cultural Center.

The education and cultural support programs are designed to reflect the importance of Native culture while encompassing the role of being a woman. The group:

  • invites guest speakers,
  • takes field trips, and
  • shares materials about traditions, cultural practices, and current women's issues.

This Women at Noon Program is being sponsored by the Women and Gender Advocacy Center, Native Women’s Circle and Native American Cultural Center.
