Trail of Tears Event @ NCC Tomorrow

To commemorate Native American Heritage Month, Northampton Community College will host a traveling exhibit entitled "Trail of Tears: The Journey of Survival and Success."

Be sure to stop by Laub Lounge (main campus) tomorrow to view "historical illustrations, photos, literature, video documentaries and authentic artifacts, which explore the beauty of the unique culture of the nations of the Cherokee, Iroquois, Seminole and Navajo."

If you'd like more information about Native American history, the NCC Libraries offer a variety of resources on the topic.

The American Indian Experience database contains full-text articles, images and primary source documents pertaining to Native American heritage and culture.
