Congratulations to Shelly Lowe, a member of the Navajo Nation from Ganado, Arizona on her appointment to the National Council on the Humanities, which makes recommendations on grant applications and advises the Chairman. She is currently the Executive Director of the Harvard University Native American Program.

On her appointment Shelly Lowe remarked, “To me humanities is about place and time. It’s the essence of a city and its people. It’s the feel of the land and the people who move through it daily. It’s the beauty of community and the energy encompassed within it. It’s a piece of time that is captured, shared, and then forever ongoing through memory, story, and learning.” To read more about Shelly Lowe’s appointment, visit the U of A website or all the appointments at the NEH website
