Weber State University welcomed Native American consultant Nino Reyos to talk about his heritage Thursday as part of a cultural celebration in the Shepherd Union.
Local Native American artists displayed their work as the WSU American Indian Council put on a program honoring the Native American culture, including singing and dancing.
Reyos talked about the heritage he shares with the 5.2 million people who identify as Native American in the U.S., speaking of the way his ancestors lived and the stories they told.
Students milled around the atrium, looking at the jewelry on display and listening to Reyos speak.
“I just really appreciate the opportunity to share part of the Native American culture with the student body,” Reyos said. “I thought that was very heartwarming to see (students are) very interested in wanting to learn some of that.”
