Culture and education both play an intrinsic role in the development of life and what transpires to one reaching their full potential and career endeavors. NAHER resources and services focus on cultivating student success, developing personal well being, and embracing culture for Native American students.

Land Acknowledgment

We pause to acknowledge that Cosumnes River College sits on the land of Miwok and Nisenan people. We remember their continued connection to this region and give thanks to them. We offer our respect to their Elders and to all Miwok and Nisenan people of the past and present.

Native American Heritage Week

#Call To Action: As an Indigenous person or an ally, being aware of issues in the community is helpful when working towards a better future. This year, we will be discussing four of the main issues that the Indigenous community faces on a daily basis. These four major issues are land and water rights, poor education system, lack of access to healthcare, and religious and cultural discrimination. Join us to learn more from tribal community members and what we can do to help.

#Decolonize Education: The education system in the United States has continuously presented inaccurate information on the history of Indigenous people. These inaccuracies have played a role in the treatment of Native Americans across the United States and Canada.
