For the past decade, the Native American Cultural Center has provided a home away from home for NAU’s Indigenous students.
NAU land acknowledgement
Northern Arizona University sits at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, on homelands sacred to Native Americans throughout the region. We honor their past, present, and future generations, who have lived here for millennia and will forever call this place home.
