The Native American student organization is a newly reactivated group on campus and is working to make their presence known.
The president of the group is Cynthia Biro, a graduate student and a citizen of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians from Northern Michi-gan. In spring 2010, Erin Hanrahan, who is now the treasurer of the group, contacted Biro asking if she would be interested in beginning a group dedicated to Native American culture.
It was brought to my attention and personally witnessed over the last year that CSU has little Na-tive American student representation, said Biro.
Over the past summer, Biro and Hanrahan worked with Reuben Shendo, vice-president, and Marie Stolkowski, secretary, to establish the organization.
In September, the executive members reacti-vated the Native American Alliance organization, and are currently in the process of changing the name offi cially to the Native American student organi-zation.
Biro said that Cuyahoga county contains the largest number of Na-tive Americans in Ohio, and yet it is one of the few states that does not have any federally recognized tribes.
This prevents access to critical community and cultural resources that are benefi cial for urban communities, said Biro. There remains little rep-resentation and support for Cleveland Native Ameri-can people.
Biro said that one of the goals of the organiza-tion is to help change this by increasing awareness of Native American culture.
The organization cur-rently contains about ten members. Biro said that six of the members are Native American CSU students who come from tribes including Ottawa, Winnebago, Navajo, Jemez Pueblo, Kickapoo and Sioux. Other members include Native American community mem-bers and organizations that are located in northeast Ohio.
However, any student, native or non-native, is welcome to join the organization.
According to Biro, the organization works to
provide social, political, and academic support for Cleveland State University students of Native Ameri-can descent.
As an organization, NASO allows Native Ameri-can students to network with other similar students, connect with their cultural history, and explore them-selves as individuals, said Biro.
The group helps students accomplish these goals through hosting a variety of events. The organization worked with the Offi ce of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (ODAMA) to host Native American heritage month this past month.
The heritage month included a round dance, forums, motivational speakers and art exhibits. A fi lm screening of The Business of Fancy Dancing was
also open to students. Shendo said that the fi lm, Invited [students] to take a look at a Native American writer/poet successfully establishing himself in an urban area and the confl icts he faces when he returns to the reservation.
A second round dance is planned for March to celebrate the Spring Equinox.
This day is a culturally signifi cant day for many tribal nations, noted Biro.
Study sessions and various social events are held throughout the year. In addition, the organization works with the Native American Youth outreach program within the Greater Cleveland region, and volunteers with the Native American cultural garden on Martin Luther King Blvd.
We decided that the best way we can give back as students is to share our knowledge, and become mentors and role models, said Biro.
Biro also said that little atten-tion is given to the social problems that exist for Native Americans. She explained that some reservations have an unemployment rate that reaches 80 percent, and heart disease and diabetes are common causes of death among the tribes.
I am a fi rm believer that the best proactive solutions to these issues can
be solved only when the general population starts thinking about Native people outside of the historical context, said Biro. Understanding history is impor-tant, but only if you intend to use it to improve upon the present and future.
Meetings for the organization are typically held once per month. To be put on the mailing list, or to learn more about the group, send an e-mail to email@example.com or contact Cynthia Biro at firstname.lastname@example.org.

From a fi eld of nominees ranging from big cities to historical societies, Special Collections at the Michael Schwartz library won an Achievement Award from the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB).
The OHRAB is a non-profi t organization that pro-vides advice and assistance to groups which maintain, preserve and provide public access to historical items.
According to Bill Barrow, Special Collections librarian, the OHRAB is primarily concerned with the standards and performance of records keeping and archival operations in the state of Ohio.

The board presented the Achievement Award to Special Collections for its leadership on
