The Henry Roe Cloud Conference started in 2005 to celebrate Native excellence at Yale through honoring the legacy of Henry Roe Cloud, a Winnebago alumnus who graduated from Yale College in 1910. With his Yale degree, Roe Cloud became a prominent educator and national advocate for Native American people, making him a symbol of Indigenous excellence that students today strive to emulate. The Association of Native Americans at Yale hosts Henry Roe Cloud conference every few years to bring together Native students, alumni, faculty, and community members. The fifth Henry Roe Cloud Conference will be happening on the weekend of November 10th, ending with a powwow on Sunday, November 12th. Our Native community has grown tremendously since Roe Cloud graduated in 1910; browse the NACC website to learn more about the Association of Native Americans at Yale, the Native American Yale Alumni, and the Native American Cultural Center.
