This collection focuses on the role of the American Indian Student Center on the South Dakota State University campus from 2000 to 2012. Included are materials related to events, fundraisers, and trips planned by the American Indian Student Center.
The American Indian Student Center has served as a home for Indigenous students on campus, but anyone is welcome at the center. The American Indian Student Center allows Indigenous students and community members to participate in their own cultural activities. These activities and cultural values are also open to non-Indigenous people that are willing to learn.
The American Indian Student Center also assists Indigenous clubs by providing space for meetings, planning events, and answering club related questions. The American Indian Student Center helped coordinated events like the South Dakota State University Wacipi (Powwow) with the Native American Club. The Wacipi has allowed Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to participate in traditional dances and cultural experiences.
