The purpose of NASO is to educate the campus about Native American culture past, present, and future.
Internationally, there are many indigenous cultures. Few still remain untouched by the modern world. For the hundreds of tribes whom came into contact with western civilization, are now in an everyday struggle to preserve their rich heritage, which originally lies within their environment. In this new environment (modern world) natural resources play a part in why and how tribes are becoming disoriented. Unfortunately due to the high demand for the natural assets these type of events have already affected North American tribes. It is our goal to teach others the cause and effects of these actions. As a group, part of our mission is to share ideas and create ways in which we can acknowledge this part of American History.
