Group may advocate for American Indians


To improve relationships with American Indian tribes and students at the University of Minnesota, the Board of Regents is considering reviving an advisory body made up of state tribal leaders.

The group would include a representative from each of the 11 tribes in Minnesota, as well as University representatives. Leaders say the council would help attract American Indian students and faculty members to the school while bettering services to current indigenous students at the University.

Although American Indian representatives say the idea is well-intentioned, some are worried about how the University would carry out the plan.
