Ahead of her evening multimedia presentation, Growing Up with Heroes: A Daughter's Journey with the Navajo Code Talkers, Zonnie Gorman will be meeting with students for a discussion based Master Class guided by the students' questions. The class will start at 4:05 PM.
A recognized historian, Ms. Gorman is the daughter of the late Carl Gorman, who was one of the First Twenty-Nine Navajo Code Talkers. She has dedicated her life to sharing the rich history and culture of the Navajo people with Navajos and non-Navajos alike. She fulfills this purpose by sharing her father's story publicly via multimedia presentations and in documentaries on the subject. She also serves as Project Coordinator for the Circle of Light Navajo Educational Project which not only focuses on educating people on Navajo culture but also fosters cultural pride in young Navajos and provides them with valuable mentorship.
Gorman earned a master’s degree in history from the University of New Mexico and is currently working on her doctorate. She is also the younger sister of the late artist RC Gorman.
This class is free but space is limited, so please RSVP if you are planning on attending. This Master Class as well as Ms. Gorman's presentation at 7:30 PM in SUB Ballroom A, are hosted by the MSU Leadership Institute.
