Abstract

Since its establishment in 1858, Iowa State University has played a significant role in the education of young Iowans. However, before the university even existed an education process was already in place by the various Native American tribes who originally called Iowa home. The purpose of this study is to inform the audience of the history of Native American education in the state of Iowa and at Iowa State University, what struggles Native Americans, including both students and staff, face at this university currently, and what we as fellow members of the Iowa State community can do to advocate for Native Americans on campus.
