The D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies draws on the Newberry’s remarkable collections in American Indian and Indigenous studies and the resources of the center to support its mission and offer programs to scholars, teachers, tribal historians, and others interested in the field.

In June 2008, the Newberry inaugurated the Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies. The consortium offers an annual workshop, summer institute, conference, as well as fellowships to graduate students and faculty at member institutions. Learn more about the NCAIS Spring Workshop in Research Methods, the NCAIS Graduate Student Conference, and the NCAIS Summer Institute. The center also sponsors the Native American and Indigenous Studies Working Group, which gathers scholars in the library to discuss papers based on work in progress.

The center also hosts frequent public programs highlighting Indigenous history and contemporary topics. You can listen to recordings of past programs here.
