American Indian Research Clearing House
Researchers are invited to post information about their research on diversity, American Indian affairs, and indigenous studies. In addition, we welcome information about research on any topic that includes broader impacts for the advancement of American Indians. The goal of this website is to provide a tool for networking and identifying potential collaborators for research and broader impacts initiatives and to provide a central clearing house for research by Native American faculty, staff and students and on topics of interest to Native American communities. Post or view information.
