Evergreen News & Stories


Tribal victories inspire Indigenous persistence


It’s rare when Indigenous issues are discussed and highlighted in the national media. It’s rarer still when successive headlines carry news of legal and cultural victories for tribal nations. A recent wave of positive news shows us the power of persistent and undaunted Indigenous advocacy, which can inspire our individual and collective efforts at Evergreen.

Celebrating Black Accomplishment, History and Leadership at The Evergreen State College’s Juneteenth

One of the momentous days in American history was June 19, 1865, when word of the Emancipation Proclamation reached its final destination in Galveston, freeing the estimated 250,000 slaves still held in Texas more than two years after the proclamation was signed.

That day is celebrated throughout the U.S. as Juneteenth. On Friday, June 5, The Evergreen State College held its 2nd annual Juneteenth commemoration, shared over Zoom for students, staff, faculty and community members.
