At Univ. of Minnesota, American Indian Graduation Rate Doubles in a Decade

Minneapolis is considered the city where the American Indian Movement began in the late 1960s, as Caroline Preston of the Hechinger Report recounts. The University of Minnesota–Twin Cities also has the oldest Department of American Indian Studies, founded in 1969.
