EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Leaders of Eugene’s Native American, African-American and Hispanic communities are questioning the University of Oregon’s decision to restructure its Office of Institution Equity and Diversity.The contracts of three assistant vice presidents were discontinued and the office has been renamed the Office of Institutional Equity and Inclusion. Tana Atchley of the Oregon Indian Education Association said at the meeting Thursday night that it was disrespectful to make the changes without consulting tribes.“These are broad, sweeping, massive changes to make,” said Tana Atchley, secretary for the Oregon Indian Education Association. “It’s really disrespectful that they would go in and do that without consulting the tribes.”The vice president in charge of the new office, Yvette Alex-Assensoh, told The Register-Guard the university is shifting to a “distributed model” in which matters of equity, inclusion and diversity will be everyone’s work rather than the sole responsibility of an individual.The protected “identities and markers” will be addressed instead of a narrower focus on race, she said.“Accountability for these issues is distributed throughout the university rather than being the sole responsibility of one person or an individual as, indeed, was the case previously,” Alex-Assensoh said.The Oregon Indian Education Association last week launched an online petition, which has garnered 144 signatures, including those of 45 faculty members, said Chixapkaid Pavel, an education studies professor.Pavel said the nine Oregon tribes plan to demand a meeting with UO President Michael Gottfredson.Longtime minority community leader Twila Souers said Eugene Native Americans were “stunned” by the unannounced realignment.

Complex and paradoxical, Nehemiah Matson (1816–1873) celebrated the occupation of the Middle West by European pioneers even as he labored to preserve the memory of the natives these pioneers replaced. He perpetuated the memory of the Indians who were driven out of the territory, but he nevertheless accumulated wealth selling their land to the pioneers. Rodney O. Davis notes in his new foreword to this book that Matson combined the attributes of a scholar with those of a salesman and promoter.

Sherman Sage (ca. 1844–1943) was an unforgettable Arapaho man who witnessed profound change in his community and was one of the last to see the Plains black with buffalo. As a young warrior, Sage defended his band many times, raided enemy camps, saw the first houses go up in Denver, was present at Fort Laramie for the signing of the 1868 treaty, and witnessed Crazy Horse’s surrender.

Anthropologists George A. Dorsey and Alfred L. Kroeber joined forces to record and preserve the rich cultural traditions of the Arapaho Indians, long split into two bands. Dorsey had done fieldwork with the Southern Arapaho after they moved from Colorado to Oklahoma and would soon be known for his study of their Sun Dance. Kroeber had visited the Northern Arapaho, who were still living in Wyoming. Traditions of the Arapaho, first published in 1903, is the result of their collaboration.
