Student Organizations

Native American & Indigenous Collective (NAIC)

A student-led organization at UT Austin engaged with the principles of Native empowerment, transnational, and intertribal unity, scholarship, and community. NAIC strives to create a supportive space for Native American and Indigenous students and is open to any UT student invested in the aforementioned principles. NAIC is housed at the Multicultural Engagement Center (SAC 1.102).

Indigenous Danza Ollinyolotl

Indigenous Danza Ollinyollotl is a student led Aztec Dance practice that is held weekly, locations TBD depending on days and weather. Ollinyollotl translates to "Movement of the Heart" in Nahuatl. Together, we practice Danza Azteca (Aztec Dance) to the beat of a drum and teach each other songs that are in indigenous languages of this land. These danzas originate in Mesoamerica and have been practiced for millennia. They have been passed down to indigenous students from indigenous mentors who have been practicing them for decades. This is an inclusive safe space where we want to learn and help strengthen each other holistically. Mind, Body, Heart, Spirit. For further information, go to:
