Native and Indigenous Resources


Northwestern is a community that exists in a constellation of historical and contemporary relationships with Native American tribes, communities, parents, students, and alumni. Consistent with the University's commitment to diversity and inclusion, Northwestern works builds relationships with Native American communities through academic pursuits, partnerships, historical recognitions, community service and enrollment efforts. We strive to center multi-disciplinary, collaborative work informed by, and responsive to, Native American and Indigenous nations, communities, and organizations while working to develop innovative and Indigenous-centered spaces that fosters community, scholarship, learning, and artistic or cultural practices.
