About Our Program
American Indian Studies has a rich history at UW-Eau Claire. Established in 1976 by Ms. Veda Stone, the American Indian Studies program started as an effort to recruit more American Indian students to the University. As interest grew in the special interests and concerns of Indian students, curricula were developed that both featured Native perspectives, and also targeted Native audiences. More history...
