ASU on Nov. 5 held their an­nual Native American Heritage Celebration in the lobby of the Houston Harte University Center.

ASU’s Multicultural Center hosted Cherokee representatives Paige Trubenstein and her father to display artifacts and answer questions.

Cody Vasquez, student ac­tivities manager at the Multicul­tural Center, said this celebration is put on every year to recognize and acknowledge all of the Native American students at ASU and in the community.

“We have actual Native American artifacts that come from the community,” Vasquez said. “We have some people who are from Cherokee descent here to talk to students about all of the artifacts.”

Students could try free Na­tive American food and make their own dreamcatcher.

Alyssa Bolen, freshman, said she wanted to learn more about Native American culture.

“I really enjoyed trying the food,” she said. “I also liked all of the arts and artifacts, so people can come and learn.”

Bolen said she thought it was good that the Multicultural Center hosted this event.

“As someone who doesn’t know a lot about other cultures, being able to come to an event like this and talk to people and ask questions is a good learning expe­rience,” she said.
