American Indians for Higher Education The American Indian Recruitment program was established at SDSU to promote success in academics in the American Indian community. Monday, July 15, 2013 ByHallie Jacobs
In 1993, Dwight Lomayesva ('99), a Hopi Tribal member and San Diego State University student, noticed a shortage of American Indians in higher education.
In an effort to increase American Indian enrollment, he (along with others) partnered with the SDSU Dept. of American Indian Studies to promote higher education and success in the American Indian community and American Indian Recruitment was born.
Twenty years later, the program that caters to young members of San Diego American Indian tribes is still going strong.
Aztecs smother Wyoming 38-3
SDSU defense limits Cowboys to 191 yards total offense as Aztecs become bowl eligible for sixth straight season
By Kirk Kenny | 10:52 p.m. Nov. 14, 2015 | Updated, 12:14 a.m. | Nov. 15, 2015
Moral victories are about all the Wyoming football team has left in a lost season.
Avoiding a shutout, which the Cowboys did with Tristan Bailey’s 31-yard fourth-quarter field goal.
Collecting more than 100 yards in total offense, which the Cowboys didn't accomplish until well into the second half.
Leaving a game all in one piece, which may or may not be the case. Wyoming running back Brian Hill was still checking after the bone-jarring hit SDSU linebacker Calvin Munson applied in the third quarter.
You get the idea.

Rez in the City
By Dana Lone Elk - Lakota Country Times Columnist
There is a big misconception in Lakota country today.
We are good people and we try to be that way to others but we seem to focus on the patriarchal way now, which was learned. Instead of the matriarchal way, which is in our DNA.
We don't teach our young men and women that there should be an equal respect there. In fact, respect is hardly ever taught.
Our children grow up thinking they deserve respect and don't have to earn it. Social media becomes more of a parent, especially when they see those who should be role models in the community using and abusing social media to air dirty laundry or beg for help. Or to brag about being humble, which is an oxymoron. Read more >

Judge Rules Tribe Gave Up Rights to Build Casino in Aquinnah
John Kennedy and Alex Elvin
Thursday, November 19, 2015 - 5:25pm
As it turns out, a gambling facility is not in Martha’s Vineyard’s foreseeable future. A federal judge has rejected legal arguments by the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) that it has the right to open a class II casino, which features electronic bingo machines, on tribal land at the western tip of the Island. The decision on Nov. 13 by U.S. District Judge F. Dennis Saylor 4th was a sweeping legal victory for the town of Aquinnah, the state and the Aquinnah/Gay Head Community Association, which argued that the tribe must submit to local and state gambling prohibitions. Tribal leaders said they were considering their options — an appeal is expected — but their legal effort to convert a vacant and unfinished community center to a gambling hall now faces a steeper hill to climb.

In short, the Tribal Council must follow its own laws, and not conveniently “re-interpret” a Hopi Tribal Council Resolution when the political winds change. Here, not one notion of Hopi fundamental fairness, not one attempt at due process, and not a single attempt to provide notice and an opportunity to be heard can be gleaned from the record and testimony before this Court.

UCLA football frustrations rise with penalty issue that hasn't resolved By: Chris FosterContact Reporter
UCLA has consistently been one of the nation's leaders in one category the last four seasons. The Bruins, though, won't be boasting about it.
Since 2012, only Baylor has averaged more penalties yards per game. The Bears have averaged 80.1 yards during that span while the Bruins are at 79.8 yards.
UCLA is also the only team to finish in the top 10 in penalty yards the last three seasons. The Bruins rank seventh this season, averaging 77.1 yards per game. "It's frustrating to everybody involved," Coach Jim Mora said. "Anything I think of, we've been trying to do as far as focusing on it and working on it in practice. I haven't, unfortunately, been able to figure out why, at times, it jumps up and plagues us." Read more >
