Recorded on March 25, 2010, in this lecture Dr. Peterson Zah discusses the history of Native American education, Navajo education, and his involvement recruiting Native American students to attend college.

    “Education may not solve everything, but it will certainly solve many, many things that we face as Indian People, Indigenous People .” – Dr. Peterson Zah

    Former President of the Navajo Nation, Dr. Peterson Zah is widely known and respected among American Indian Nations. Zah is a distinguished alumnus of Arizona State University, having received an honorary doctorate in 2005. A member of the Navajo Nation from Low Mountain, Arizona, Zah is a co-founder of the DNA People’s Legal Services Program. He is the last chairman of the Navajo Tribal Council and the first elected President of the Navajo Nation. He currently serves as a Special Advisor to the ASU President on American Indian Affairs, working to develop strategic alliances between Arizona State University and Tribes. These partnerships encourage Tribes to utilize university resources and expertise to advance their communities in areas such as community development, strategic planning, finance, law, construction, and education

    The lecture series is sponsored by the Heard Museum and Arizona State University’s American Indian Policy Institute; American Indian Studies Program; Department of English; Faculty of History in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies; Indian Legal Program in the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law; Labriola National American Indian Data Center and the ASU Libraries; and Women and Gender Studies in the School of Social Transformation.
