About Us

High Plains Indian Research Institute (HPAIRI)

The mission of the High Plains American Indian Research Institute at the University of Wyoming is to empower Tribal Nations by facilitating and providing access to cutting-edge research opportunities with the University of Wyoming (UW). Given this mandate, the work of the Institute is both interdisciplinary in nature and broad in scope.

Far from focusing on one specific discipline or area, HPAIRI aims to facilitate partnerships between Tribal Nations in the High Plains region and the world-class researchers at UW across a number of disciplines, departments, and academic programs.

In accomplishing this mission, HPAIRI’s work is generally divided into five core themes:

1. Strengthen and Facilitate Relationships between UW and Wyoming-based Tribal Nations.

2. Empower Tribal Citizens through Direct Participation in the Research Enterprise.

3. Educate the UW Community, and the State of Wyoming in General, Regarding Opportunities to Develop Positive

    Relationships with Tribal Peoples.

4. Develop a Repository for American Indian Research.

5. Create a Clearinghouse for Research Partnerships.
