American Indian Studies Center Fortieth Anniversary
Nash, Gary B.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v35 n1 p33-37 2011
In this article, the author shares his comments on the past, present, and future of the American Indian Studies Center (AISC). He discusses how AISC was established and describes how American Indian studies have come a long way from the neglect and disparagement of Native Americans in the way American history is written and taught. He also describes how UCLA's American Indian Studies Center has been part of this transformation for forty years, which has involved nothing less than the reorientation of a nation of several hundred million in the face it turns to "the First Americans." (Contains 2 notes.)
