NAI Extraordinary Service Award

The NAI Extraordinary Service Award goes annually to an individual or group that promotes extraordinary service to the Native American community at Notre Dame. The award was established in 2018 and the winners are listed on a plaque that currently resides with the American Indian Catholic Schools Network (AICSN) of Notre Dame. The award is presented at the Native American graduation and recognition ceremony in the spring semester and all students who are active in the Native American Student Association are asked to contribute to selecting an honoree or honorees for the year.

We acknowledge our presence on the traditional homelands of Native peoples including the Haudenosauneega, Miami, Peoria, and particularly the Pokégnek Bodéwadmik / Pokagon Potawatomi, who have been using this land for education for hundreds of years, and continue to do so.
