In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP), this panel will highlight the 1970 creation of the American Indian Program (AIP) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the experiences of its first students. Dr. Robert Matthai, founder of the program, and four of the program's first students will join in a conversation about their experiences in the program and their careers as leaders in education.
