What is NAGIS?

The Native American and Global Indigenous Studies (NAGIS) project recognizes the need to support and amplify Native American and Indigenous voices across all University of Miami campuses. Our goal is to provide ongoing and varied opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and the University community at large, to consider the complex histories, lived experiences, and perspectives of Native peoples in relation to diverse areas of knowledge and, more importantly, to their own lives.

Land Acknowledgement

The University of Miami acknowledges the ancestral and traditional territories of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, the Council of the Original Miccosukee Simanolee Nation Aboriginal Peoples and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida who are the original owners and custodians of the land upon which we stand and learn.
