Class of 2009
"I chose Native American Studies because I want to help the Native community in the future and I have a passion for studying indigenous issues in an academic setting. The CSRE department has given me many opportunities including support to conduct research for my senior honors thesis on racial segregation which discriminated against the Alaska Native population."
--Holly Miowak Stebing,
Native American Studies Major, History minor '09
"I tried several majors before deciding to major in Native American Studies. All were academically challenging and interesting, but none of those classes compared to my first NAS class sophomore year. It touched me in a way that none of my other classes had and focused on issues that I will be dedicated to for the rest of my life. Furthermore, it coincides with my extracurricular activities at Stanford, including being involved with Stanford American Indian Organization, and connected me to an amazing summer internship through the CSRE department."
