Indigenize Indiana T-shirts

Indigenize Indiana T-shirts

Through a partnership with the Miami, Delaware, Potawatomi, and Shawnee communities, we are very happy to offer "Indigenize Indiana" Tribal T's! Each T-shirt features the indigenized version of "Indiana University" written in one of the Tribal languages that were spoken on this land well before the founding of IU.

Shirts are being sold at the FNECC for $20 a piece, and 100% of profits will go to creating educational programming with each of the respective communities' language and culture departments. Please consider supporting this important project and helping to Indigenize Indiana University!

Please contact the FNECC at 812-855-4814 or fnecc@iu.edu for more information.

We are currently accepting cash and check.
