Renowned Coast Salish Carver Felix Solomon to Lecture at SIUE2014-10-21 14:39:41 SIUE.edu
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville will celebrate Native American Heritage Month during November by hosting Felix Solomon, an active member of the Lummi Nation, one of the Coast Salish tribes of northwest Washington.
The public is invited to an evening of song and art with Solomon on Tuesday, Nov. 4, at 6 p.m., in SIUE?s Center for Spirituality and Sustainability. He is one of the most significant indigenous carvers in the U.S., because he is one of the only master carvers worldwide who carries forward the ancestral carving tradition of the American Coast Salish.
?Mr. Solomon will present an illustrated discussion of his artworks, including totem poles, ceremonial masks and other spiritually empowered wood carvings from the Northwest Coast,? said Dr. Julie Zimmermann Holt, professor in the Department of Anthropology within SIUE?s College of Arts and Sciences and coordinator of the Native American Studies program. ?He will address the mission of his life work as a cultural conservator and teacher who aims to preserve the works and approaches of his forbearers, while mentoring younger carvers to perpetuate a tribal tradition that can still reflect current themes while remaining rooted in ancestral styles.?
During his visit to SIUE, Solomon will give presentations to several classes in Native American Studies, anthropology, and art and design. Working hands-on with students, faculty and staff, he will also share his insight on Northwest Coast artifacts in SIUE?s University Museum.
Solomon was the featured artist at the Smithsonian Institution?s 2012 American Indian Living Earth Festival. He is a collaborator of SIUE Professor of Philosophy Gregory Fields on the recently published book A Totem Pole History (University of Nebraska Press, 2013).
SIUE?s Native American Studies program is an interdisciplinary minor featuring courses contributed by the Departments of Anthropology, Historical Studies, Philosophy and Political Science. A major goal is to bring Native American speakers and artists like Solomon to campus.
Solomon?s visit is funded by the Native American Studies contributing departments, the College of Arts and Sciences, the SIUE Alumni Association, SIUE?s Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration.
For information about Solomon?s public lecture, call 618-650-3246.Read Full Story ...

SIUE Upward Bound Student Discovers a Gift and Passion for Poetry2014-10-21 12:04:54 SIUE.edu
The poetic prowess of a 16-year-old Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Upward Bound student has captured the attention and praise of renowned wordsmith and lyrical master Dr. Eugene B. Redmond.
Desmond Porter, a junior at the SIUE East St. Louis Charter High School (CHS), didn?t discover his love for verses and rhyme until entering high school.
?My parents always stressed the importance of school and making education a priority,? said Porter of his parents, Lance and Kim Porter. ?I have always made efforts to study hard and learn as best I can.?
The CHS and Upward Bound BEM student didn?t have a favorite subject through middle school. However, Porter said he was introduced to a myriad of subjects in high school, and one in particular piqued his interest ? poetry.
Porter then began taking in a ferocious diet of poetry. ?I fell in love with poetry from the onset and engrossed myself in reading and writing it.?
The junior won a high school-wide poetry contest in his freshman year for his poem, ?Freedom.? The contest was sponsored by the Eugene B. Redmond 75th Birthday Celebration Committee. The first-place winner of the high school contest received accolades from Redmond, SIUE emeritus professor in the Department of English Language and Literature and co-founder and namesake of the Eugene B. Redmond (EBR) Writers Club.
?He was a very focused and serious young man,? Redmond said. ?I am very proud of him.?
Porter also got to read his winning poem at the East St. Louis Poet Laureate?s birthday celebration and his original work was published in the East St. Louis Monitor.
?Dr. Redmond also extended an invitation for me to join his roundtable poetry group,? the CHS student added.
Porter is also a member of several CHS clubs including The Year Book Club, student council, GRIT, STEM Club, Robotics Club and The East St. Louis Project, which seeks to preserve the city?s history through photography and written documentation.
He also is a high achiever in the Upward Bound BEM (Brooklyn, East St. Louis Charter and Madison) Program. One of the program?s primary goals is to expose students to different environments and educational prospects. Porter has visited many colleges and universities with the program and has broadened his educational reach.
?The Upward Bound Program has helped drive my interest of all sorts of education,? Porter said. ?I really enjoy the program and look forward to the benefits it brings to me.?
Porter?s mother added that she is proud of the road her son is taking. ?It is Desmond?s passion through his love of poetry that he touches the lives of people,? said Kim Porter. ?His desire is to plant a seed that will spring up and bring hope to those in need.?
Who?s offering freedom for the enslaved kid?
Who?s offering freedom for me, the mentally enslaved with no chains that hold, but sins try to control me?
Who has the key?
The key of freedom?
The key of peace?
The key that I see in my sleep while dreaming of being free?
Free me from my shackles and unleash my neck from the choke holds of sin, for I may breath. For I am mentally bound, and I need my key.
My key of freedom.
My key of peace.
The key I see in my sleep while dreaming of being free.

SIUE Hosts Illinois Regional College Fair Today2014-10-21 06:00:57 SIUE.edu
Prospective college students can learn more about the options available to them during the SIUE Illinois Regional College Fair (IRCF) Fair tonight from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Morris University Center Meridian Ballroom on campus.
The event, which is sponsored by the Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling (IACAC) in conjunction with SIUE, will present high school and transfer students with the chance to learn about opportunities in higher education.
The fair gives prospective college students and their parents the ability to meet with college representatives from more than 90 in-state and out-of-state colleges and universities. Financial aid representatives also will be on hand to answer questions. In addition, local high school counselors will be present to provide assistance to any student looking for guidance on post-secondary options.
?On behalf of IACAC and SIUE, we truly appreciate the support of the counselors from local high schools and community colleges who are helping us provide this opportunity for students and families to explore numerous colleges/universities, all within one setting on one evening,? said Todd Burrell, SIUE director of admissions and former president of the IACAC.
Hundreds of students attend the fair each year to learn about academic programs, student life and other aspects of the college experience. Before the Illinois Regional College Fair was initiated, college fairs were held several times throughout the year at various area high schools. The annual event on the SIUE campus serves to consolidate efforts and centralize higher education options for everyone involved in the process.
?The goal of the Illinois Regional College Fair is to give high school and transfer students from the local area and the Metro East the chance to speak with college representatives from institutions, not only from Illinois, but from other states across the country,? said Kelley Brooks, admissions coordinator from SIUE.
For more information, as well as a listing of participating colleges, visit siue.edu/ircf. No registration is required for the event.Read Full Story ...
