Letter from the Chair

It is an amazing and exciting time for NAS at Cal Poly Humboldt. We have three new tenure-track faculty hires in the last five years. Who are local Indigenous women dedicated to continuing the legacy of this department. We’ve doubled our majors, tripled our minors, and continued to build cross-disciplinary and cross-college opportunities for students to take NAS classes. We believe in the power of our community connections, and we know that the next 25 years and the 25 years after that are full of potential and possibility. Our work in NAS will continue to center our tribal communities, Indigenous knowledges and our shared futures. Some of our planned projects include: continuing to revitalize the Center for Indian Community Development including a Language Revitalization Lab, Food Sovereignty Lab and community workshop space. We remain a grassroots department, one that builds community for our students and invites our Indigenous nations to partner with us. Consider donating to the department if you can or reach out to us so that we can dream the next 25 years together. - Cutcha
