OMS Events

OMS Movie, Message & Snack: Fruitvale Station

Tuesday, October 21
7 to 9 p.m.
Residence Life Lower Quad Lounge

In the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2009, police responded to reports of an altercation on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train in Oakland. Not long after, 22-year-old Oscar Grant, who had been celebrating New Years Eve in San Francisco, was shot dead by police officer Johannes Mehserle while being detained along with his friends on the subway platform of the Fruitvale station. The name Oscar Grant has joined Rodney King and Amadou Diallo as a byword for the tense relationship between law enforcement and people of color, specifically black men.

OMS ID:Summit

Saturday, November 15

In our first annual ID: Summit we will spend the day exploring, celebrating, challenging, creating and being proud of who we are individually, within our communities and in the world at large. Through dynamic, interactive and engaging seminars, guest speakers, and activities we will spend the day discovering that our intersectionality—how we overlap within ourselves—is our most powerful and prestigious strength.

OMS Movie, Message & Snack: Smoke Signals

Tuesday, November 18
4 to 6 p.m
Student Center Main Lounge

This groundbreaking film depicts a literal and figurative journey from the Coeur D'Alene reservation in Idaho to Phoenix by two teen-aged Native Americans/American Indians, Victor Joseph and Thomas Builds-the-Fire. Smoke Signals is a deceptively "small" movie and was the first feature film to be written, directed, and co-produced by First Nation people.

OMS HOLLA: Change the Mascot

Wednesday, November 19
3:30 to 5 p.m.
Student Center Family Room

Change the Mascot is a national campaign to end the use of the racial slur “redskins” as the mascot and name of the NFL team in Washington, D.C. Launched by the Oneida Indian Nation, the campaign calls upon the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell to do the right thing and bring an end to the use of the racial epithet.
