Experience the Indigenous Tour of Northwestern

Northwestern has a rich Indigenous history. Did you know that Carlos Montezuma, founder of the Society of American Indians and the first Native man to receive a medical degree, is a Northwestern alumnus (class of 1889)?  NU also produced the first Native dentist, James Johnson (Mohican), who was Northwestern’s first all-American quarterback.  Were you aware that NU’s new floor in the Welsh-Ryan Arena was sourced sustainably from the Menominee Reservation?  These are just a few of the stories in our new Indigenous Tour of Northwestern, available as a multimedia StoryMap here:  and as an audio GPS guided walking tour, with 14 stops, on the ECHOES app.
