Native American Student Organization (NASO)

The Native American Student Organization is comprised of Native and non-Native University of Nevada, Reno Students. The purpose of the organization is to bring Native and Non-native students together to learn about each other's cultures. As the UNR Pow wow grows as one of the premiere cultural events in Northern Nevada, The Center for Student Cultural Diversity seeks assistance from student groups dedicated to its planning and coordination. Any UNR student who would like to commit to the planning and implementation of the pow wow should contact the Native American Student Organization.
