Turning Points Magazine

This ground-breaking magazine started humbly in 2016 by a small team with sponsorship by Dr. Amanda Tachine.  The passion, drive and discipline of this multi-disciplinary team of students gives voice and presence to Native American and Indigenous students in a beautifully-designed, thought-filled and powerful medium. The team includes Sequoia Dance, a recent graduate of the Masters in Social & Cultural Pedagagy program; Taylor Notah, the Senior Editor of the magazine and recent graduate of the Cronkite School of Journalism; Danielle Lucero, a current PhD student in the Justice and Social Inquiry program; and Brian Skeet, a recent graduate with a degree in Industrial Design and Design Management from the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts. Turning Point highlights resources available to Native students, as well as student narratives that create a sense of belonging and community. The magazine highlights Native students on college campuses across the US – to bring forward resources, narratives, and stories that usually go whispered, and don’t always get to be the center of attention.
