American Indian Studies Minor


The American Indian Studies (AIS) minor focus is derived from American Indian epistemologies and a place-based perspective. Provides students with an opportunity to engage intellectually and to develop critical understanding of tribal sovereignty, the culture and identity of California Tribal nations, and American  Indians in North America more generally. The minor prioritizes the worldviews of Tribal nations, and introduces students to important work in American Indian (de)colonization, political and economic development, arts and culture, Tribal systems of knowledge, health and wellness, environment, resource management, cultural revitalization, political theory, activism, and nation  building. The American Indian Studies minor offers students the knowledge and expertise needed to develop critical perspectives and understand the  theoretical frameworks structuring historical  and contemporary issues related to American  Indian communities. The AIS Minor challenges students as they develop the research skills and cultural competence needed for community engagement and project development, which  can lead to internships and other career opportu-nities with American Indian communities, organizations, and tribal governments. As a whole, the American Indian Studies Minor enriches students by offering  the  prospect to develop the  cultural proficiency required to work successfully in the diverse professions that serve American Indian communities.
