The Native American Studies Indigenous Research Group (NASIRG) was formed in October 2004 to celebrate Indigenous Day, an alternative to Columbus Day. Since its inception, NASIRG has promoted many events, lectures, and research presentations that focus on Indigenous issues. NASIRG continues to educate and inform the general public and students about major concerns in the Native American Studies Field. As a group, we are also committed to preserving cultural traditions among the various Native communities. Our involvement with the University's community has allowed us to achieve many goals.
The purpose of this organization is to encourage research participation, raise consciousness regarding Indigenous issues, increase student community involvement, and foster the exchange of ideas through academic and peer support.
