Four Points Press: ICYMI week of April 14

Things are heating up at Four Points Press. We are starting to receive internship applications. We are hoping to get a few more from local students so we can hire one intern from a university and one from Little Big Horn College.

Board member Carrie McCleary and I spent the week at Hopa Mountain's Strengthening the Circle Native Nonprofit Gathering. It was a such a great time of renewal and learning. We learned so much about working with Indigenous boards and building policy that works for Indigenous nonprofits. I am so grateful for Hopa Mountain and the work that do for Indian Country.

Big apologies to our subscribers for my tardiness with the newsletter I was so busy at the gathering that I wasn't able to get it out, but here it is in all it's glory. We had a busy week last week.
