American Indian Studies Faculty

The American Indian Studies faculty generally have a sustained history of participation within the urban American Indian community of Southern California, with the canoe cultures of the coastal indigenous people of Southern California and in the subject areas of the courses that they teach.  American Indian Studies faculty work closely with the American Indian Student Council — the Native American Student Association, the CSULB NAGPRA Committee, the CSULB American Indian Science and Engineering Student Chapter and with the office of American Indian Student Services.  CSULB has a ranking from first to fifteenth in the nation for graduating American Indian Students depending upon the particular year and the specific major.
