SUPPORT NATIVE STUDENTS THIS
NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH

The Student Journey

The American Indian College Fund understands that each American Indian is on a unique journey to complete their education and start a career that benefits their families and their communities. We also understand that for many of our students, success is often tied to honoring their culture and heritage throughout their entire journey. By providing opportunities to our students to elevate their voices and share their stories, we aim to create a world where American Indian students are seen, heard, and acknowledged by everyone. With you by our side, we will be able to meet our mission, which is to increase the number of American Indians with college degrees, which is just 14% today.

Robbie Robertson

Robbie Robertson

Robbie Robertson is a Canadian musician, songwriter, film composer, producer, actor, and author. He is best known for his work as lead guitarist and primary songwriter for The Band, and for his career as a solo recording artist.

“In October 1994, I released Music For The Native Americans. It was my first foray into writing music specifically inspired by my Mohawk heritage.  My song Ghost Dance is especially meaningful to me, as it really shares my connection to a First Nations story with you. Thank you for listening to it and celebrating Native American Heritage Month with me in this special way.”

“Native women and girls experience violence at far higher rates than any other female population in the country – a crisis that has devastated our communities and that has been neglected for too long. I’m proud to be one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress, along with Representative Deb Haaland, and to be working to tackle the epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women. We’ve introduced legislation to strengthen coordination between Tribes and law enforcement, improve survivors’ ability to seek justice, and help ensure the safety of women and children in Indian Country. It’s my goal to raise awareness and put forward proactive, comprehensive solutions that address the silent crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women.”
