Native Student Union (NSU)

The Native Student Union is in the process of reestablishing itself as an independent student union.

The President is Anna LaCourse of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, the Vice President is Kyle Brown of the Karuk Tribe, the Treasurer is Michael Glah, Plains Indian, and the Secretary is Sara Wilky, unaffiliated.

The Native Student Union (NSU) is a collection of Lewis & Clark students both indigenous and curious dedicated to the study, reflection, and celebration of Indigenous cultures and histories worldwide. Our vision is to unite native students and their allies through insightful discussion, introducing them to relevant speakers and sources, and by creating an open and safe space conducive to a community of Medicine.

In native communities, Medicine is defined as anything necessary and beneficial to the mental, physical, spiritual and emotional well being of the individual and the community; an ideal we hope to share with NSU members, L&C students, and the greater community at large. In the same way that food, family, and dance are Medicine, the NSU community provides a source of Medicine to students through its various missions and endeavors.

The Native Student Union meets every Tuesday at 7:30p, in the room 235B (the Multicultural Resource Center), in the Templeton Campus Center by the Trail Room.
