An Oglala Lakota woman is calling upon leaders at her university in Denver to fulfill a promise they made last spring.

Celeste Terry, a 30-year-old student of applied indigenous law and science at Metropolitan State University, said she and other Native students at the university were promised free tuition and fees by the university's top leader.

MSU Denver President Janine Davidson made the announcement on May 6, during the university's first ever Native graduation ceremony.
