BriAnna Roehrborn: My name is BriAnna Roehrborn and besides being one of the Native American Center's student staff here on campus. I previously served as the the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). I am a first generation student of mixed race and am currently completing my Bachelors in Nursing. My tribal affiliation is Kiowa, and I was born near their reservation in Oklahoma, yet raised in Plymouth, Wisconsin, so I pride myself in being both a Midwesterner and someone with a lot of Southern influences.

To promote fellowship among the American Indian community of central Wisconsin.

To foster the formal and informal educational goals of American Indian people.

To identify, transform, and utilize educational resources that address the needs of Wisconsin tribes in a manner commensurate with the cultural values of tribal communities.
