American Indians for Higher Education The American Indian Recruitment program was established at SDSU to promote success in academics in the American Indian community. Monday, July 15, 2013 ByHallie Jacobs
In 1993, Dwight Lomayesva ('99), a Hopi Tribal member and San Diego State University student, noticed a shortage of American Indians in higher education.
In an effort to increase American Indian enrollment, he (along with others) partnered with the SDSU Dept. of American Indian Studies to promote higher education and success in the American Indian community and American Indian Recruitment was born.
Twenty years later, the program that caters to young members of San Diego American Indian tribes is still going strong.

News for Students - (Weds. Morning):
Does American exceptionalism make us dumb?
By Jay Parini
Updated 2:51 PM ET, Tue February 24, 2015
(CNN)Talk of American exceptionalism has become headline news, with loud sputtering from Rudy Giuliani, who suggested that President Barack Obama doesn't love America in the same way that the rest of us do. Giuliani wants to dwell on our exceptionalism -- the idea that we're different from other countries, and much better.
It's an old idea that Obama took on in the second year of his presidency, when he said: "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism." Read more >
The myth and lie of American exceptionalism (COMMENTARY)
By Tom Ehrich | Religion News Service February 24 at 11:32 AM
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — While I was driving to this eastern Oklahoma city that serves as capital of the Cherokee Nation, the Oklahoma Legislature was considering a bill to ban the teaching of history based on facts.
Instead, the legislators want a sanitized version of U.S. history based on lies and puffery about “American exceptionalism.”
It’s no wonder, since the state’s own history has a certain tarnish. The Land Rush of 1889 gave white settlers land taken partly from native tribes. Many land-rushers crept onto promising tracts early (hence their nickname “Sooners,” now the state’s nickname). Read more >
Native Fishing Rights Headed to Trial
By JUNE WILLIAMS
SEATTLE (CN) - The Makah Tribe can pursue its claim against the Quileute and Quinault tribes over disputed fishing grounds in a bench trial in March, a federal judge ruled.
All three tribes live on the Olympic Peninsula.
The case stems from a 1974 injunction by U.S. District Judge George Hugo Bolt inU.S. v. Washington, which affirmed certain tribal fishing rights the state had been denying. The Makah filed a subproceeding in 2009 to determine the usual and accustomed fishing ground of the Quileute and Quinault, claiming the tribes were fishing beyond their boundaries and taking the Makahs' catch.

Obama vetoes Keystone XL pipeline, leaving it in limbo
BY JEFF MASON AND TIMOTHY GARDNER WASHINGTON Tue Feb 24, 2015 6:05pm ES
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Tuesday, as promised, swiftly vetoed a Republican bill approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline, leaving the long-debated project in limbo for another indefinite period.
The U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, after receiving Obama's veto message, immediately countered by announcing the Republican-led chamber would attempt to override it by March 3.
That is unlikely. Despite their majority, Republicans are four votes short of being able to overturn Obama's veto.
They have vowed to attach language approving the pipeline to a spending bill or other legislation later in the year that the president would find difficult to veto. Read more >

TUCSON, Ariz. - Bryce Alford scored a game-leading 22 points as UCLA dropped a 57-47 decision to No. 7 Arizona before a sold-out crowd of 14,655 at McKale Center on Saturday night.
UCLA opened both the first and second halves on scoring runs but was unable to continue its momentum through the final minutes of each half. The Bruins (16-12, 8-7 Pac-12) raced to a 7-0 lead to start the game, holding Arizona scoreless over the first 6:05. Read more >
