November RSO Feature

The University of Chicago’s Native American Student Association, NASA, is an association designed for students and faculty to discuss the cultural, social and political concerns involving Native Americans and to raise knowledge and understanding of these concerns within the U of C community. NASA sponsors Native American social, cultural, and academic events and programs throughout the year in conjunction with other organizations and departments. NASA is strongly dedicated to creating a community of scholars and is open to all University of Chicago students, faculty, staff and alumni, both Native American and non-Native American from all disciplines.

  • "On Being Native in the 21st Century: New Meanings, New Data": Lecture, reception and dinner with Dr. C. Matthew Snipp, Professor of Sociology at Stanford University.
  • “Cultural Identity, Sovereignty, and Politics: Tribal Leading”: Talk with Chief John P. Froman, head of the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma.
