October 2013: Cama-i Room program highlights

by Michelle Saport  |   

The Cama-i Room is a social gathering place and study center for all UAA students. Cama-i Room programs and activities celebrate Alaska Native, Native American and Alaska cultures. Cama-i (pronounced Cha-my) is a Yupik and Alutiiq word for "welcome" and "hello" and encompasses the spirit in which this room was created.

All events are held in the Cama-i Room, located in the Gorsuch Commons, and are open to the community, unless otherwise noted.
