|About||A meeting ground for scholars, teachers, tribal historians, and others interested in American Indian and Indigenous Studies|
The D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies was founded in 1972. Its goals are to encourage the use of the Newberry collections in these areas of study; improve the quality of what is written about American Indians and Indigenous peoples; educate teachers about American Indian and Indigenous cultures, histories, and literatures; assist American Indian tribal and Indigenous historians in their research; and provide a meeting ground where scholars, teachers, tribal historians, and others can discuss their work with each other.
McNickle Center is also home to the Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies (NCAIS).
