Resources to Help You

The Center for Native American Studies serves a wide variety of people from NMU students to K-12 classes, as well as the general community to specific needs of Upper Peninsula Native Americans.  To accomplish, the center has an abundance of resources for all.

We have divided the information about our many resources into two basic categories: Native American-related resources and NMU-related resources. The links for both are to the left. If you were unable to find information you were looking for, please contact us and we’ll do our best to assist you. We can be reached at 906-227-1397 or
