Native American Heritage Month Panel

Welcome to
Native American Studies

The Native American Studies (NAS) Program at the University of Michigan places American Indians at the center of broader inquiries into the nature of the human confrontation with intrusive power.

Faculty and students work together to explore, through the humanities and the social sciences, varieties of the Native American experience and the importance of Indians to American history, literature, religion, social sciences, politics, and law.  Wherever we confront questions of identity that embroil American Studies, American Indians loom large.
