Words of Wisdom

The NAP launched Words of Wisdom in March 2020 after Dartmouth announced a remote Spring Term due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students expressed concern about being disconnected from the Native and Indigenous staff and faculty they regularly engage with for advice and mentorship. The NAP reached out to staff and faculty and asked if each person would be willing to write a letter to the students -- imparting the advice and guidance they would have offered through in-person conversations. The many written contributions submitted during this time capture what makes the Native and Indigenous community at Dartmouth so beautiful, and they are shared here to be treasured.
