In our efforts to address racism in the U.S., it is imperative that we include the voices of Native and Indigenous peoples in that conversation. Native history and current reality relate to the larger picture of how white supremacy works. Whether you are seeking ways to actively promote racial justice in support of friends, neighbors and colleagues, or whether you identify as Native or Indigenous and seek educational resources, support or wish to report a bias incident, each of us can play a part in stopping anti-Native bias and racism.
The resources below include off-campus resources that Columbia is not affiliated with, nor does it explicitly endorse any of the advocacy groups, hotlines or organizations listed here. This list is intended only to inform students of resources available to them in the broader community.
