LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A four-day event featuring Native American music is getting underway at Haskell Indian Nations University.
The Lawrence school is promoting the Haskell Resurgence event as a way for students to brush up on their school’s mission before a reaccreditation site visit. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the first three days of the Friday to Monday festivities are open to the public.
Event committee member Diane DuBray says rules governing Haskell’s use of money meant no school funding could be provided for the student-organized endeavor. A number of guests have agreed to come for reduced prices. The students also are accepting donations through an online fundraising site.
