Native Community

Welcome to the Native American Online Community at SACNAS.

We hope that you will find a welcoming community that respects and honors our cultures, our peoples, and our shared future. Our goal is to provide you with opportunities and materials revealing a vibrant Native science community (American Indian, Alaska Native, Hawaiian, & Indigenous Pacific Islander) willing to provide teaching and learning resources, networking and mentoring opportunities, access to an exciting Native American scientific community, and links to friends & support.

This is your site and it will change to address your needs and concerns. We will celebrate our Native community of scientists by honoring them and their activities. We welcome your participation in this great community. You can make this site a vibrant and living site by contributing to it in any way you think appropriate. 

How to Participate

We wish to provide you with a safe online community of Native scientists. A place where we can come together to ask questions, participate in a virtual talking circle, find a mentor, or talk openly about issues you face. Please let us know your ideas & help us create this space for the SACNAS Native community will connect & interact together. Please contact Rolando Madrid, Director of Programs, to get the conversation started


You are invited to meet Native research & researchers from Alaska Native, Native American, Native Hawaiian, & Indigenous Pacific Island communities, as well as learn about opportunities & programs.
