Institute for American Indian Research (IFAIR)


The Institute for Indigenous Research (IFAIR) brings together faculty members from across disciplines to center Native American Studies as theory and praxis in all areas of scholarship. IFAIR facilitates research by providing active support for faculty and graduate research, highlighting Indigenous studies initiatives across campus, and providing a forum for interdisciplinary conversation between and among Native and non-Native faculty and students committed to such issues.  IFAIR promotes community-inspired, service-oriented scholarship that will link the university to Native American Nations and communities and generate discussion of Indigenous issues both within the university and in the surrounding area.
