Historical Note

Established in Chicago in 1974, NAES College (Native American Educational Service) aimed to improve the leadership of Native communities and to ensure that tribal knowledge, traditions and values play a major role in the higher education of Native students. Before closing its doors in 2007, NAES College offered a single degree, a Bachelor's of Arts in General Studies with an emphasis in Public Policy, and tribal knowledge, community service, community development and leadership.

Americans for Indian Opportunity is a non-profit organization founded and led by LaDonna Harris (b. 1931) and other Native American activists in 1970, as a network to develop initiatives and opportunities to enrich the cultural, political and economic lives of Indigenous peoples.

Scope Note

The documents in this collection are from the offices of Americans for Indian Opportunity (AIO), and were compiled primarily by LaDonna Harris, AIO President. The records include conference materials, economic development reports, and reports to the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
