Native American Studies at NMU

The Center for Native American Studies cares for multiple academic programs in Native American Studies. The programs and courses are designed for both Native American and non-Native American students. Rooted in Great Lakes Anishinaabe Indigenous worldviews, classes range from Anishinaabe language to governance and expression to education. The programs and courses reflect decolonizing processes to ever-growing global and local conversations of earth-centric care.
