Grounded by a strong commitment to the worlds, histories, representations, and political struggles of indigenous peoples internationally, the intellectual project of the American Indian and Indigenous Studies minor uses interdisciplinary methods of critical inquiry as a means through which students engage research and scholarship in their major fields of study.

Graduate students pursuing the minor have many opportunities to participate in the intellectual life of the Program, which hosts speaker series, conferences and symposia, reading groups, and writer's workshops. Moreover, with American Indian Studies being a member of the Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies (NCAIS), students can take advantage of the resources, fellowships, and programs at The Newberry Library and McNickle Center.
