Located in what was originally Blackfeet territory, the Native American Studies Program at Montana State University - Northern focuses on the critical intersections of race, indigenous identity, contemporary issues, cultural traditionalism, and social movements among American Indian and Native North American nations.


Native American Studies minors are people with curious, critical, and open minds who are eager to understand the holistic histories and contemporary concerns of American Indian and Indigenous peoples regionally, nationally, and globally.

Native American Studies faculty at Montana State University - Northern strives to create an intellectual framework for academic and community-focused research and teaching.

Native American Studies graduates will leave Montana State University - Northern prepared to enter graduate school programs or careers in health care, education, fine arts, digital and media production, non-profit organizations, business and entrepreneurship, tribal governance, environmental resource management, law and policy, and many others.


Through examining issues of sovereignty, law, nation-building, settler-colonialism, border imperialism, social justice, expressive cultures, and the historical roots of Native American and indigenous lives as they are lived today, a Native American Studies minor cultivates a powerful educational foundation for graduates to pursue a variety of career paths.
