American Indian culture is at the heart of the College of Menominee Nation.

College of Menominee Nation (CMN) degree programs, research, and student activities are committed to addressing contemporary problems through modern science and methodologies that are informed by ancient knowledge.

It offers academic degrees in select associate and bachelor’s degree programs, diplomas and certificates in technical and trades areas, and a variety of continuing education options.

The College of Menominee Nation was chartered by the Menominee People in 1993, and authorized by the United States Congress in 1996 as one of only three Land Grant Colleges in Wisconsin.

Three college credit Native American Studies Courses Offered Online

Montana State University offers several online graduate and undergraduate courses in Native American Studies for spring semester, 2013.

The offerings include graduate-level courses: “Native America: Dispelling the Myths,” and “Federal Indian Law and Policy.” Another course, “Indigenous Literature and the West,” is new and can be taken for either graduate or undergraduate credit.

All courses begin on Jan. 9 and are open to on- and off-campus students. Admission to an MSU degree program is not required. However, up to three credits can be used by those students who choose to enroll in MSU’s new 12-credit online graduate certificate in Native American Studies.


“Indigenous Literature and the West” covers literature that relates to indigenous people of the U.S. and Canadian West. Students will review classic American literature, historical non-fiction and film. The instructor is Amy Gore, who graduated from MSU’s master’s program in Native American Studies with a specialty in indigenous literature.

“Federal Indian Law and Policy” traces the history and complexity of Indian law, covering treaties, water rights, natural resource development and tribal businesses. The instructor is William Eggers III, a Crow tribal member, attorney and adjunct instructor at Little Big Horn College, Rocky Mountain College, and MSU. Eggers is a former first assistant United States attorney, special deputy attorney general and Montana state representative.

In “Native America: Dispelling the Myths,” students will use readings, videos, online conversations and creative projects to wrestle with the series of assumptions commonly held by non-Indians and sometimes Indians alike. The instructor is Rebecca Wingo of MSU’s Department of Native American Studies.

The courses begin online Jan. 9 and run through May 3, 2013. The courses are particularly helpful to Montana teachers who need training to fulfill the state’s Indian Education for All mandate.
