Grand Opening of the American Indian Hall
A promise kept and a dream fulfilled.
Celebrate the grand opening of Montana State University’s American Indian Hall at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, at the building’s site on east side of campus.
The grand opening event will begin shortly before 10 a.m. with a ceremonial procession from the American Indian Resource Center — a 1,100-square-foot room in the basement of Wilson Hall that has housed Indian student activities since 1974 — to the new building on the east end of the university’s Michael P. Malone Centennial Mall.
Speakers will include Henrietta Mann, a nationally recognized tribal elder enrolled with the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma and MSU professor emeritus in Native American Studies and the inaugural Endowed Katz Family Chair in Native American Studies. Other speakers include MSU student Georgeline Morsette representing the current American Indian Council.
The speakers will be followed by a procession into the building followed by public tours of the structure.
Parking is available in the Parking Garage on the corner of South 7th Avenue and Grant Street behind Norm Asbjornson Hall. ADA Parking is available in the Lot #17 as well as in front of the Strand Union Building. See parking map here.
