The mission of the Native Narrative Tour is to tell a story of American Indian presence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by highlighting the historical and contemporary experiences of Native peoples on campus, in the state and by shaping a vision of inclusivity for the future. Through narratives, it hopes to educate both Native and non-Native people about American Indian people who were here before the University was built, the Native people who have made an impact on campus and in the state, and increase the visibility of Native people at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The Native Narrative Tour is a Priceless Gem Tour, hosted by the UNC American Indian Center in partnership with the UNC Visitor’s Center. NativeNarrativeTour
