Native Students at the Native Graduation Ceremony, May 2012


Native Studies is currently an informal program at CU that involves all faculty interested in the topic of Native American and Indigenous Studies. The group formed in 2011, and meets at least once a semester for lunch, discussions, and informal research presentations. We are currently pursuing a more formalized organization and student program.
