November is also a time to educate others on Native history, raise awareness of the unique challenges faced by Native people (historically and today), and highlight ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.

Here are a few ways you can learn more and engage in Native American Heritage Month right here on campus.
  • The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) at the University of Minnesota builds community by bridging science and technology with traditional Native values. The group focuses on substantially increasing the representation of Indigenous peoples of North America and the Pacific Islands in STEM studies and careers. Learn more on the AISES website.
  • The American Indian Student Cultural Center (AISCC) promotes cultural diversity, develops leadership in American Indian students at the University, and promotes the understanding of American Indian people, issues, history, and culture.
  • The Circle of Indigenous Nations (COIN) works to recruit, retain, and graduate American Indian students by promoting cultural values that help them become self-directed, excel academically, and succeed in all areas of their academic pursuits and career aspirations.
  • The University of Minnesota Department of American Indian Studies strives to cultivate Native leaders and allies by providing a critical and comprehensive education in the field of Native American and Indigenous Studies.
Beginning fall semester 2022, the University of Minnesota Native American Promise Tuition Program will be available at all five University system campuses. The full tuition waiver program will provide substantial financial support, in many cases free tuition, to first-year undergraduate and transfer students from Tribal colleges who are enrolled citizens of one of Minnesota's 11 federally recognized Tribal Nations. For more information, visit the University of Minnesota Native American Promise Tuition Program website.
