encompasses issues facing indigenous and minoritized groups such as globalization, health care, school curricula, and management of archaeological sites and cultural heritage. We foster indigenous scholarship (both undergraduate and graduate), and promote collaborative relationships such as those between the academy and tribal and local community stakeholders.
