NASA is a student organization that plans and promotes events related to Native American heritage and culture on campus.   Throughout the year NASA sponsors and co-sponsors many events.  Members do not need to be Native American to join and participate in these activities. These activities help strengthen the ties of all individuals on campus. 

Some of the past events NASA has hosted include: craft workshops (such as beadwork, rattle-making, making dishbags, and Hot Plate), Earth Day activities, First Nations Food Taster, NMU homecoming activities, "Learning to Walk Together" traditional pow wow, Leonard Peltier activities, Native American Heritage Month, and Title VII picnic.  Students will also get together for movie night, bowling, and meals.  This past year, NASA has participated in the Idle No More demonstration walk.

NASA meetings are held weekly and are open to all NMU students.  Sign up today!
