The Northern Cheyenne Boarding School Experience - An Oral History
Dartmouth College MALS 127: Independent Study by Cinnamon Spear
Completed under the leadership and guidance of Prof. Myrna Frommer

"Carry This For Me" is an oral history passed from mother to daughter.
Cinnamon Spear, using the te
stimonial of Gladys Limberhand, creates a film that documents a story of survival.

"At the tender age of five, Gladys was the resident of a military-style environment modeled after the ideals of the man who coined the term "Kill the Indian, save the man." Lt. Richard Henry Pratt founded the first of such institutions in Carlisle, Pennsylvania (1879). The Indian boarding school system was thereafter imposed across Indian Country by missionary forces and the federal government for the purpose of "education for extinction." This cultural genocide undoubtedly created harsh negative effects on Indian child development including the areas of cultural identity, psychosexual development, and expression of individualism. The isolation and dehumanization inherent in this system took a devastating toll on individuals, family relations, and entire tribal communities. Intergenerational trauma continues today in the forms of identity loss, substance abuse, sexual abuse, suicide, and pervasive depression. Recognizing this history, bringing forth these stories, and stepping forward together is what will heal and strengthen our communities.

So as you listen, I ask as my mother did, that you 'carry this for me.'"

Paid Summer Health Services Research Internship for Undergraduate Students
Today, one in every four Americans belongs to a racial or ethnic minority group. Yet despite tremendous advances in health science in recent decades, minorities still fall victim to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS in numbers far greater than whites.

Clearly, it's going to take more than medicine alone to change this fact. It will take health services researchers and epidemiologists whose minority perspective can bring a broader understanding to the political, social, economic and environmental realities of the disparity of health care between minorities and whites.

To prepare top candidates to pursue research in health services and epidemiology, the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) and the Health Care Management Department of the Wharton School (HCMD), University of Pennsylvania are seeking applicants for our summer research program for underrepresented minority undergraduate students and interested others. Candidates from minority groups that are underrepresented in the field of health services (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and Pacific Islander) are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Summer Undergraduate Minority Research (SUMR) program, in its fourteenth year, provides rising sophomores, juniors and seniors with an opportunity to receive a generous monthly stipend to conduct health services and/or epidemiology research on a topic of their choice, under the guidance of Penn faculty. The purpose of SUMR is to prepare and encourage top students to pursue academic and research careers in health services research and epidemiology. In addition to conducting research, SUMR Scholars will participate in an orientation program, enroll in a GRE prep course, attend weekly seminars, attend a national conference in Baltimore, and network with health services researchers and epidemiologists. The program runs from late May 28th through August 16th and currently is funded by LDI, HCMD, the Provost’s Diversity Fund, and the VA Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP). Past supporters, and/or supporters of individual SUMR Scholars, have included the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Penn's Center of Excellence for Diversity Health Education and Research,  and Penn's School of Nursing.

Interested students can get program details and the on-line application due February 1, by visiting SUMR’s web site at

Please contact at or (215) 898-1655 if you have any questions.

Dartmouth Native American Studies Program Chair highlighted on ICTMN website

Some highlights from the story include:

"Since 2009 Nathan Bruce Duthu, an enrolled member of the United Houma Nation of Louisiana, has been the Samson Occom Professor of Native American studies and the chair of the Native American Studies program at Dartmouth College."
"In 1986, Duthu and his wife returned to New Hampshire so he could, as he put it, “give back” to the Native American program at Dartmouth. He was director of the program until 1989, and then an associate dean of freshmen and director of the Intensive Academic Support Program."
"'Once I was in the classroom, to be very honest, I knew that I was not going to go back to being a lawyer,' Duthu said. 'Working with students and being both in a counseling capacity but also as an educator­—being able to teach a course—was very, very addictive in a very good way. I just knew that this was going to be something that I was going to enjoy doing for a long time.'"

First Voices is accepting submissions!

First Voices is a student-run publication that is dedicated to providing Native students a platform for their voice.
If you have:
  • Art (drawings, paintings, photographs!)
  • Comics
  • Short Stories
  • Poetry
  • Cultural/Political Commentary
We know you're creative, wonderful people. And we want to share your work with campus.

1) MCAT 2013

The MCAT registration for January to May 2013 exam dates will open October 16, 2012. The AAMC will not provide a time as to when registration will open; however, it will be posted to their Twitter account (@AAMC_MCAT) when it occurs.  Students are urged to sign up promptly when it opens so that they can get the location/date/time they would like. If students have questions as to how to choose this, based on their preparedness for the exam, please contact the Health Professions Program to discuss.
Registration on-line (and other info):

Attached are two important documents:

  • The actual MCAT 2013 schedule and an announcement as to how to seek financial assistance.
  • A listing of official MCAT Prep Resources from the AAMC.  Even if students are using other materials (e.g. Kaplan, Princeton Review, ExamKrackers) or taking a formal class, they should think about investing in some or all of these materials, if they are not provided by the learning resource.

Two other aspects of the MCAT 2013 test:

  • There will be NO Writing Sample.
  • The AAMC is adding a "Trial Section" to test out questions to be used in future MCAT exams, which studentswill be asked to volunteer for.  It would add 45 minutes to the exam and would NOT be part of the grade. No preparation necessary for this and a totally voluntary part (they will give a $30 Amazon gift card for completing it).

2) MCAT 2015
For those Nathan Smith Society members contemplating taking the "new" MCAT exam to be administered for the first time in March, 2015, a copy of the 2nd Edition of the Preview Guide for this exam is now in the NSS Resource Center (123 LSC) and is also available on-line at:
