Models will display regalia from Alaska Native and Native American cultures starting 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13, as part of the celebration of Native Heritage Month. Following the fashion show, Keggeluk (Big Crooked Teeth), a motivational speaker known for wit and humor, will share stories of meeting difficult challenges, an overcoming that strengthened the spirit. Also known as Earl Polk, Keggeluk is Yupik/African American and Mohawk from the Bethel area. Both events take place in Fine Arts 150. The evening begins with a reception at 6 p.m. in the Fine Arts upper lobby. For more information, contact Mary Reeve at 786-4004 or email@example.com.
