Mission of the Dine' Club

The mission and goals of the Dine’ Club is to promote cross cultural knowledge and reinforce Dine’ (Navajo) culture, education, beliefs, traditions, in which we were taught by our great forefathers of the past.  It is in our best interest to make life unique and beautiful for our students at Haskell Indian Nations University by developing individuals who will identify themselves positively while being able to survive culturally in any society.  These understandings will direct us to re-condition and clarify the Dine’ way of life, as well as knowing our educational purpose and potential of this institute.  The Dine’ club signifies leadership, belonging, and friendship for the Dine’ People and all Nations at Haskell Indian Nations University.
