Association of Native Americans at Yale (ANAAY)
Founded by John Bathke (‘89), the Association of Native Americans at Yale (ANAAY) is a student-run political and cultural organization at Yale University designed to celebrate, educate, and appreciate Native cultures and histories. ANAAY is devoted to the establishment of a Native presence on Campus. The group works towards Indigenous cultural awareness of the Yale Community with a Native perspective through panels, speaker programs, and other events throughout the year, including our annual Indigenous Peoples’ Day celebration, our powwow, and our participation in the Ivy Native Council. See the links below for information about some of our events! Join the Association of Native Americans at Yale for meetings in the NACC conference room on Wednesdays at 7pm, and contact our board members to learn more.
