"In collaboration with the American Indian Resource Center (AIRC) at the University of Utah, the Book Arts Program (BAP) at the J. Willard Marriott Library developed a zine titled Influential Indigenous Leaders. The AIRC drew inspiration from Adrienne Keene’s book Notable Native People: 50 Indigenous Leaders, Dreamers, and Changemakers from Past and Present. They reached out to the BAP to design a zine that supports K-12 and community outreach and celebrates indigenous histories. The staff and faculty from both programs designed a simple single sheet with photos and descriptions that highlight 13 Native leaders. Panelists for this program include: Jazmin Gallegos, K-12 & Community Outreach Coordinator, Book Arts Program; Hailee Roberts, Program Coordinator, American Indian Resource Center; and Tashina Barber, Program Manager, American Indian Resource Center."
