Haé! (pronounced ha-ay) 
Hello! in the Seneca language.

This Gen-I Native Opportunities Weekly (NOW) message shares information about the 2018 Sequoyah National Research Center (SNRC) Summer Internship.

The Sequoyah National Research Center (SNRC) is providing summer internships to three tribally affiliated students from June 4-July 27. SNRC holds the world’s largest archival collection of newspapers and other periodicals published by tribal individuals and organizations. Through hands-on experiential learning, interns will gain an understanding of the value of archives and the potential of research to engage in academia and archival activities related to tribal culture, society, and issues. Interns will be provided with on-campus housing at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and $2,000 to help with living expenses. Students will be notified of acceptance by April 2.
