From the President...

NAAHU is a recognized Shared Interest Group (SIG) under the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA). For more information about SIGs, please visit the Harvard Clubs and SIGs website.

Welcome to the Native American Alumni of Harvard University website! 

Our goal as an organization is to serve as a forum for our Native alumni to foster an environment of shared collaboration and conversations to grow our Native network. Our organization is comprised of former classmates and peers as well as Native Faculty, Staff, and Friends to continue to participate, learn, and share in the unique Harvard educational experience. Our Board of Directors oversee the work of our organization who are themselves Native alumni from across all of Harvard’s schools. We are still a fairly new SIG within the broader Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) community; we are nearing the end of our first decade as an alumni group, and while we have made progress over the last 10 years with respect to reaching out to our alumni and providing opportunities to unite, learn, and grow together, we need and truly do value alumni engagement as we continue to grow and develop as a young Shared Interest Group. NAAHU is an organization that is by and for all alumni. Please consider joining us for our upcoming Annual Meeting in Cambridge, MA, on Thursday, April 28th through Sunday, May 1st - either in person or remotely.

The site is designed to help keep you informed about Harvard, about NAAHU activities as a registered Shared Interest Group (SIG) of the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA), and about how to facilitate your involvement. We encourage you to review our updated site, find activities of interest, and volunteer to serve on a committee. This is an opportunity to renew and/ or build new friendships and to plan for the future of Natives at Harvard.

NAAHU is only as strong as its alumni network, so we encourage your membership, your talents, your ideas, and your support in an effort to build our organization. If you could please fill out the membership form, which you can access online here, we would greatly appreciate it. You are also encouraged to join us on social media by visiting our Facebook page “Native American Alumni of Harvard University (NAAHU).” If you have any further questions or would prefer an electronic copy of the membership form via email please do not hesitate to contact us at

We look forward to networking with you in the future.



Cesareo Alvarez Jr. (AB ’13) & Emily Van Dyke (AB ’03 & HSPH ’09)

Your President & President-Elect
