What We've Been Up To...
Rez Beats
Rez Beats is community project initiated by the Indian Health Council to provide a safe space for youth as an open mic to share their feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

We were able to bring Rez Beats to UC San Diego for Native American Heritage Month featuring Native poet, Tazbah Chavez. Many youth participated in the open mic to share their thoughts, feelings, and art.
Tonia Jo Hall
We ended Native American Heritage Month with our final event featuring Native comedian Tonia Jo Hall.

The ITRC invited students to join us for dinner with Tonia before the show.
ITRC Study Jam
We hosted our quarterly Study Jam with extended hours from 9:00 A.M. - 9:00 P.M.

Students studied and were able to take a break with some snacks and dinner.

Stay tuned for our future Study Jams!
ITRC Holiday Bash
ITRC friends came together to attend our annual Holiday Bash.
We each brought a potluck dish to share and all participated in a gift exchange.
