American Indian Studies
Associate of Arts Degree
Explore the vast history and culture of the native peoples of the North American continent. Emphasis is placed on the tribes of the Wind River Reservation. Central Wyoming College recognizes that the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone elders represent the wisdom of the past. Their knowledge of the tribal traditions should nurture the Indian student who seeks not only education but also wholeness through preparation for the future and respect for the past.
The American Indian Studies program is a tool for that preparation and an affirmation of that respect. The program also offers non-Indian students the unique opportunity to learn in the classroom about tribal cultures first hand in the Wind River area.
