Native Americans with a Future

NAWAF or NAIWAF (Native American Indians with a Future) 


Native Americans with a Future (NAWAF) was established in 1981 as the first student organization to support indigenous students and educate the campus on indigenous issues. NAWAF showed films and held speaking events on campus between 1981 and 1987 while receiving funding from CSA.
