Center for First Nations Studies

The Professional Program in Education’s Center for First Nations Studies provides the unique resource of oral traditional Elder scholars in residence who assist in teacher education and prepare K-12 teachers and University faculty to deliver accurate, culturally competent instruction. Students have the opportunity to develop relationships with tribal elders and to gain a deeper knowledge of American Indian history and culture by spending time in the Center with Elders, and in turn, be better prepared to teach students.
