Native American Student Association

NASA_xl.jpgNASA 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. Sign up today! 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 dish bags, and Hot Plate), Earth Day activities, First Nations Food Taster, NMU homecoming activities, "Learning to Walk Together" traditional pow wow, Leonard Peltier activities, and Native American Heritage Month. NASA also participated in an Idle No More demonstration walk. Students will also get together for movie nights, bowling, and meals. 

 

This semester (F18), NASA meetings are held weekly on Wednesdays at 3 pm (odd weeks 3, 5, 7) and Tuesdays at 5 pm (even weeks 4, 6, 8) in the Whitman Hall Commons (Room 136) on NMU's campus and are open to all NMU students.
