About this Program

American Indigenous Studies (AIS) provides an interdisciplinary and broad understanding of Indigenous Americans, especially the Dakota, and their respective ways of life in the past, present, and future. AIS welcomes all students - Indigenous and non-Indigenous - to pursue knowledge of Indigenous American cultures, languages, histories, politics, media, etc. The AIS program prepares students to pursue graduate studies and careers located in tribal communities or in ethnically diverse settings. Incorporating Indigenous perspectives into the curriculum, AIS facilitates a space whereby Indigenous worldviews will be an enduring and integral part of the diverse global community.
