Digital Indigenous Studies

Award winner
In the summer of 2013, the Peace Studies Program, along with faculty in English, Geography, and Sociology were awarded a Mizzou Advantage grant and then a grant from the Interdisciplinary Innovations Fund to develop this website and a course to be offered in Fall 2014 entitled "Digital Indigenous Studies." 

How to Help
If you want to improve the lives of individuals in global, indigenous/tribal communities by contributing to nation building, understandings of diverse indigenous cultures, and promoting connections between indigenous communities and scholars, then you have come to the right place. The aim of this project is to develop an indigenous presence at the University of Missouri, and act as a web portal for indigenous stories, films, maps, and various other information about indigenous groups in and around Missouri.
