is Penn's Native student organization representing Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native students, dedicated to increasing awareness of Native & Indigenous culture, history, and contemporary issues, while enhancing the visibility of Native & Indigenous students on campus, which is on Lenape Land.
We achieve this by:
- Improving recruitment and retention efforts in admissions to increase Native presence on campus, and
- Connecting Native students, staff, alumni, and allies through events such as Penn's annual Powwow, our Indigenous Peoples' Day celebration, numerous speaker presentations, and other outings and activities that build cultural-awareness and strengthen our supportive community.
Whether you have been highly immersed in your culture, still learning or wanting to learn more about your heritage, or even if you don't identify as Native but want to learn about Indigenous issues and be an ally, we are excited to welcome you all!
