We are a community of American Indian, Alaska Native, First Nations, Native Hawaiian, Indigenous, and non-Indigenous scholars dedicated to producing knowledge that promotes the sovereignty, wellness, and understanding of northwest coastal and plateau tribes and nations and other Indigenous peoples.

The CAIIS Advisory Board was officially organized in through a governance committee of four deans from the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education, the College of the Environment and the Information School. 

Nearly a dozen units, including the Provost’s Office, the Graduate School, UW Tacoma and UW Bothell, have contributed to fund the center and related activities.
