One of the reasons I came to Duke was to learn more about myself, and for me this included gaining a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of my Indigenous heritage. Because Duke does not offer a Native Studies Program, it has been difficult for me to achieve this goal. Unfortunately, the only support I have received on campus has been from other Native students rather than from the university. Duke’s lack of Indigenous professors, a Native Studies Program and an Indigenous Cultural Center makes it clear that the university’s priorities do not include creating a supportive environment for Native students.

Fanned eagle feathers are thrust into the blushing sunset. A sea of headdresses sway and shake to the beat. Neon ribbons flap against deerskin ponchos. Drum groups chant blessings through song. Dancers stomp on the sandy floor with their worn-out moccasins. Although I have attended too many powwows to count, I always find myself lost in a child-like wonder when ribbons fly.
