In Fall 2017, IUPUI American Indian Programs partners with the IUPUI Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, IUPUI Social Justice Scholars, the Indiana Native American Indian Affairs Commission, and several local tribes and nations to offer some exciting opportunities to learn about contemporary Native American issues and how those impact us all!


American Indian Programs and those programs and organizations it supports: Native American Indian Studies (NAIS), Native American Faculty Staff Council (NAFSC), and Native American Student Alliance (NASA) are looking for both on and off-campus partners, Native tribes and nations, and individuals invested in bringing about a socially just world!!
