IUPUI dNAIS at Yale Dr. Jennifer Guiliano (IUPUI Native American History) leads scholars and tribal leaders in the first of three Digital Native American and Indigenous Studies (dNAIS) workshops sponsored by the National Endowment to the Humanities. The first here was held at Yale University in June, a second workshop will be held at ASU in Flagstaff, AZ in October, and the final workshop of this series will be held at IUPUI in Spring 2017!

Native American and Indigenous Studies Minor

The minor is a 15-credit program which requires two courses: N101 Introduction to Native and Indigenous Studies (3 credits) as well as N396 Native American and Indigenous Studies Experiential Learning (3 credits). The remaining three courses can be chosen from a myriad of approved Native content courses offered through various departments within the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. Students must be currently enrolled at IUPUI and maintain a grade of "C" or better for all courses in the program. Program enrollment should be initiated by the beginning of the junior year.

Classes are often taken by students in a number of fields to satisfy cultural diversity requirements. Students also include NAIS courses in programs leading to degrees in medicine, law, education, public administration, social work and criminal justice. Many students enroll in the program to learn more about their own identity or Native ancestry.
