American Indian Alumni Group

Constituency Group of the Office of Alumni Relations

The University of Montana American Indian Alumni Group was formed in the summer of 2003. Today we reach out to more than a thousand alumni and friends, by helping them stay connected to the University of Montana and each other through events like the annual Kyiyo Celebration, football tickets, Griz football tailgates, and UM Indian Alumni merchandise. The UM Indian Alumni Group plays an integral role in the success and viability of UM and its indigenous graduates.

Upcoming Events

The American Indian Alumni Group hosts an annual regular season tailgate. This tailgate is held in tailgate space #3 along the Kim Williams trail. The tailgate begins approximately 2 hours before kick-off and at halftime. Each tailgate is sponsored by different UM American Indian Alumni, Business or Community group. Contact Wilena Old Person if you are interested in sponsoring or co-sponsoring a tailgate.
