Though our students’ time on campus is limited, their time as a member of our community is not. The NACC offers various opportunities for our alumni to stay connected with the goings on campus and with one another. Stay involved with our growing network of alumni through our annual Native Community Alumni Reunion Homecoming events, Alumni Hall of Fame, Stanford Native American Alumni Association, and Stanford Native Alumni Facebook Group.

Get Connected

The purpose of Stanford Indigenous Alumni Association (SIAA) is to honor, connect, and support the Indigenous Stanford alumni community in all its diversity. In furtherance of that purpose, SIAA shall provide opportunities for cultural, social, educational, and professional interactions and support for Indigenous alumni; Stanford Indigenous students (current and prospective), faculty, and staff; other Stanford alumni organizations; the greater Indigenous community; and the general public. 

SAIO 50 for 50

The SAIO 50 for 50 is a series of alumni spotlights organized by our indigenous alumni and the NACC to celebrate the Stanford American Indian Organization and Stanford Powwow’s 50th anniversaries. Each week for the 50 weeks leading up to the fiftieth powwow (May 2021), we will profile a different indigenous alum. If you would like to nominate someone for a spotlight, please fill out this form.

Native American Alumni Hall of Fame

The Multicultural Alumni Hall of Fame was established in 1995 at the suggestion of trustee member, Charles Ogletree, '74, MA '75. Since then, each of Stanford's four ethnic community centers: Asian American Activities Center, the Black Community Services Center, El Centro Chicano; and the Native American Cultural Center have participated. Alumni are inducted in honor of their distinguished service to their communities and society  at large.

Each year the award is presented by the community centers at a festive ceremony and reception during Reunion Homecoming Weekend sponsored by the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA). Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the SAA announced that there woudl be no 2020 Reunion Homecoming events--including the Alumni Hall  of Fame--during Fall Quarter.
