The NAECC acknowledges the traditional homelands of the Indigenous People which Purdue University is built upon. We honor and appreciate the Bodéwadmik (Potawatomi), Lenape (Delaware), Myaamia (Miami), and Shawnee People who are the original Indigenous caretakers.

 

Welcome from the many tribal nations represented at the Native American Educational and Cultural Center! The NAECC is home to Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian students, faculty, and staff representing over 65 Indigenous nations at Purdue University. Established in 2007 through student and campus advocacy, the NAECC is instrumental in nurturing student learning and success and provides educational opportunities for the campus community to learn about Indigenous cultures.
