STANFORD AMERICAN INDIAN ORGANIZATION (SAIO)

Created in 1970, SAIO's original mission included improving the recruitment and retention of Native students, staff and faculty; the institutionalization of culturally relevant curriculum; the establishment of a community center and theme house; and the permanent removal of the Stanford Indian mascot.  SAIO is the umbrella organization of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians at Stanford that addresses the social, political, educational, and cultural issues of the community.
