Dan Wildcat notes that Haskell's problems are rooted in the ....Union.

It is unethical to require students to buy his book. And I am willing to bet it deals with climate change. Oh well, same stuff over and over, Chenault is supportive of Wildcat so nothing will be done.

The question about hiring his former female students under his grant, is that true or not? It just seems the unethical problems at Haskell continue. I also have a friend who is a neighbor to a Haskell grant worker where parties are thrown for students. She said it sounded like they were having a blast until the police showed up. Unethical??? What poor PR for Haskell.

Will the new president clean all this up, or will he/she be run off too?

Funding is once again being cut at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.

tomatogrower...I have the clue! I am suggesting what needs to be cut. AIS is a worthless degree. Haskell needs to look at what degrees that actually will serve our people best.

Funding is once again being cut at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.

A close review of programs and degrees that actually impact Native people in a positive manner is needed. I cannot find any valid reason for American Indian Studies and what services that particular degree does for tribes. Most individuals who have that degree have told me that they cannot find a job with this degree to help our people.

Maybe AIS should be cut. The only instructor in that department who has any true connection with her culture is Melissa Holder. She was raised on her reservation and has lived in a true Native fashion. She does not need books to learn about her people, Native philosophy, or how to deal with non-Natives....she has lived it! The others never lived the Native way of life or on the reservation or tribal area; they are what you call urban Indian. And, they are what traditionalists call the white man's Indian.

Cutting AIS would save a lot of funds that could be used toward degrees that actually benefit our people. Let Ms. Holder develop a Social Work degree which is a profession really needed on most reservations.

Question: Why is there not a demonstration by the AIS people on 23rd asking for support for funding?

The Bureau of Indian Affairs vs. Brigham Young University.

Wow! Get defensive. I only stated what one of your classmates said. And just was wondering what your education background is? I am impressed on how you express yourself, so please do not get bent out of shape. I don't disagree or agree with you until I know all the facts. Plus, there are other Native issues that I am more concerned about than the Haskell dilemma.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs vs. Brigham Young University.

What is Mr. Sanderville's educational background and current position? I was told by a former classmate of his when he was a student at Haskell that he was not totally supported by several students and faculty as his radical behavior emerged. I understand he even interrupted the commencement ceremonies, angering several graduates.

Did he ever graduate from Haskell?

Is the leadership at Haskell Indian Nations University allowing students who have been academically removed to be reinstated?

I have a question. Most higher education institutions reduce the staff when there is a drop in enrollment. Has Haskell done this to save money, or are we, as taxpayers, still allowing Haskell to employ the same number of employees? A drop of 300 students is significant! I was told in all the years except when Haskell opened up to the early 1900's has the enrollment ever dropped below 800.

It would be surprising if Chenault were placed as president, she has no degree in administration. - another BIE blunder. And, the Haskell Union is advocating for Chenault to be president? This sounds typical of the Haskell Union - not very intelligent in the whole educational leadership process.

Is enrollment down at Haskell Indian Nations University?

What is the actual enrollment for Haskell this semester and who is JA???

Haskell moves

Yes, Dr. Warner may have had her own style of leadership, however she did have a vision of turning Haskell into a premiere university. One of the traits of an outstanding leader is to have a vision. Did she not outline her plan for at least her first year, and make it public? So the Haskell faculty and staff, if they can read and comprehend, should have known her intentions...to have people become accountable! That is not called bullying. I have been told by several faculty members that she did follow protocol - I was even told that Chenault's son said so. I understand an AIS instructor who impregnated a student often used the words "bullied and not following protocol" in reference to Dr. Warner, I hope tuschkahoma that you are not related nor associated to this instructor.

I only hope that Haskell will find a good leader who has a vision and requires his/her constituents to be accountable.
