Greek sorority at Haskell University

Native sisterhood comes to Haskell Indian Nations University

By Lorraine JessepeFive women at Haskell Indian Nations University stepped up to make a positive difference in each other’s lives by bringing the first greek letter organization to campus in the spring of 2010.

Alpha Pi Omega, the nation’s oldest American Indian sorority, is a sisterhood of American Indian women committed to family, community, tribe, academic excellence and self-empowerment. Established in 1994 at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, the organization has grown to 13 chartered university chapters in five states.

Native American sorority celebrates 16th year

Native American sorority Alpha Pi Omega celebrated Founder’s Day on Willard Lawn Wednesday with members and alumni in honor of the national organization's 16th anniversary.

The Queen Bees (as they call themselves) collected school supplies for donation to the Iowa Tribe Youth Program, an after-school mentoring program in Perkins. They also brought cupcakes and cookies and passed out ribbons during the week to raise awareness about human trafficking, high school dropout rates, and respect for Native American veterans.
