Alyce Tejral accepts History Nebraska’s Champion of History Award from History Nebraska Director Trevor Jones, April 7, 2021.

Foundation honored with History Nebraska award

The Genoa U.S. Indian School Foundation was honored to receive History Nebraska’s Champion of History Award. The award is given annually to recognize outstanding contributions by an individual or organization who help to preserve or interpret Nebraska History. Michelle Tiedje of Lincoln nominated the school.

The Foundation was recognized for its tireless efforts to ensure the school’s history and legacy is not lost. Because of the Foundation, more is known about the school. Without the Foundation, school buildings and remnants would likely not still exist, and hundreds of Native people would not have seen that some Nebraskans care about what took place at the school and the lasting impact it has had upon Nebraska’s Native communities.

The award was presented at History Nebraska’s Legislative Luncheon on April 7th.  Alyce Tejral received the award on behalf of the Foundation.
