Free slave labor from Haskell Indian Nations University Students in Lawrence, KS

@ frankie8 The Bureau of Indian Education is in charge of Haskell. They are in Washington D.C. and they don't care about Haskell. Haskell we believe is the only post high school they run for Natives and again they don't want too be bothered and they show it in every way possible. No funds, barely any classes, a president who seems not to care, a lackluster board of regents and lack of oversight for the entire school for starters no president ever stays long before they are pushed out by the employee campus bullies. What goes on at Haskell has went on for a long time, it's not a university it is a boarding school. People need too start going to their congressmen. The Bureau is done with Haskell. The Lawrence community needs too come together and help Haskell turned into a community college. Here is a link too the people who give Haskell their accreditation they should be contacted. Haskell should NOT be accredited : http://www.ncahlc.org/

My wife and I never knew Dr. Warner. We knew of her, but did not know her on a personal basis. Maybe you are still angry that she left you behind? Why did you even bother to bring her name up, she is no longer at Haskell. Our concern is not Dr. Warner.
Venita Chenault seems too be a big problem for Haskell. It is not many of their employees who get detailed at least twice. According to Mr. Redman's own statement he is taking over the reins for Venita Chenault. If you question that you need to go ask Mr. Redman we are simply going by his own statement. We are concerned about what is happening at Haskell, the education their students are or are not receiving and our tax dollars. Many in the Lawrence community share our concerns.

The Lawrence Journal World persist in having problems getting requested records concerning Haskell Indian Nations University

We are sure this is not from what 3 years ago? Why does Venita Chenault keep getting put on these details? We agree a full investigation would clear up this whole matter. Keep up the good work Lawrence Journal World. Don't give up.
@ drillsgt We agree with you. Where are the monies going from the sports programs, NOT into AIS we hope.

We are NOT suggesting take away, we want too make it better. Haskell already is basically a 2 year school. Letting Native Americans continue to pay what they pay now then make it a community college. They can get rid of instructors and replace them with real professors, have more money put into it by charging Non-Natives full tuition and have accountability about what goes on there. They do have an exchange program of sorts but we don't think many KU students take advantage of it, although it is nice for the Haskell students. For Haskell to have staff saying they are experts in oh let's say environmental studies when they are not is wrong and misleading too their students, which Haskell seems too have NO problems with.

@ drillsgt Certainly does sound like a mad employee.

Here's what we don't understand "Dr.Venida Chenault was requested by Mr. Drapeaux Acting Director of Bureau of Indian Education to assist in Development of Special Projects. " Requested? We doubt that. They had too get her out of there, with all the grade changes..... Haskell can't even tell the truth about why Chenault was put on detail. Didn't Dr. Warner put her on a detail too? Or are we wrong about that? Anyway, leave her in D.C. @ drillsgt MS. JGF in AIS needs to go too. Someone somewhere needs to request her too !

Don't talk too us about responsibility. My wife and I both worked our way through college and both received our college masters degrees. We both worked full time until our retirements at 65. We put our only child through school and never once ask for a government hand out. We understand that some people go through hard times and must have help. However, Haskell is a train wreck that seems too get worse by the minute. Their students suffer the most. As a responsible taxpayer living right here in Lawrence for many years it is our responsibility too speak up for these poor students. Where does it say on any treaty that Native students can only go too school with other Native students? Make Haskell a community college for anyone who wishes too attend. Lawrence needs one, it will help the Haskell students, maybe even get them some real professors and the real education that all deserve Native and Non- Native. Or hand the whole thing over to KU and let them educate the students the federal government does not care about the Haskell students. Look at the mess it is in.
