50% of the Native population lives in metropolitan areas. Native Americans also have the highest drop-out rates and are also the poorest population in the country, in thier own homeland. Right now, the only location that have a tuition waiver for Native Americans is U of M-Morris.

      I am signing because the land that these institutions that are here are on Native Lands that have been forcibly removed from them and something needs to be done to show respect and gratitude for the mistakes and injustices that have been done.

      The U of M is right on to create the tuition waiver at Morris, but I believe it should be expanded to all campuses to better serve the Native population.
