The Underrepresented Native American History Behind Harvard University

In the short story “First Fruits,” Standing Rock Sioux Tribe member Susan Power explores the overlooked Native American history of Harvard University, which included the Indian College established in the 1640's. This project will research the Harvard Indian College, the first Native American graduate, what Harvard is doing today to represent this history, and how Harvard’s Native American students and faculty are feeling today regarding their representation.
