Join us for a timely discussion during Native American Heritage Month in Arizona! Lourdes Pereira will be discussing her efforts to create a policy within the Tucson Unified School District to allow Native American Students to wear their regalia on graduation. Her efforts further led to the historic passing of H.B. 2705 in 2021, which ensures that members of tribal nations can wear their tribe’s regalia and objects of cultural significance during graduation ceremonies in the state of Arizona. This is her story.

Lourdes (or Lulu) Pereira is this year's Miss Indigenous ASU 2020-2021. She is Hia-Ced O’odham and Yoeme and a member of the Tohono O’odham Nation. Lulu is a Sophomore at ASU. She is double majoring in Justice Studies and American Indian Studies. She works for Labriola National American Indian Datacenter at Arizona State University. Lulu was also a co-founder of Voices of O’odham Students at ASU, the first O’odham student-led organization. She is active within other student organizations, sitting on 3 different committees: Native American Heritage Month committee, Land Acknowledgment Committee and Indigenous Culture Week Committee. She was also the previous female president of Tucson Native Youth Council, and was a philanthropist for Unidas Women’s foundation of Southern Tucson. Lulu also created and implemented a policy within the Tucson Unified School District to allow Native American Students the right to wear their regalia on graduation, which was also adopted by Pima Community College in its dress code for graduation. Lulu is very passionate about educating, empowering, and advocating for the Indigenous communities of North America and hopes to continue those efforts after graduation.
