All FIU students are welcome to join the “Global Indigenous Group” GIG, a student-led organization of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples who seek to celebrate and share global Indigenous heritages, sovereignties, memories, and knowledges. GIG is an integral part of the FIU Global Indigenous Forum.

GIG is a place for Indigenous students to feel welcome on the FIU campus, to express their identities and to gain leadership experience. GIG sponsors numerous cultural performances, museum exhibits, guest speakers. We also work to raise awareness of issues that Indigenous peoples face around the world and we advocate for the social and communal development of Indigenous communities. Our group also works to support and network with Indigenous students, professors, and professionals. GIG honors the various traditions of our diverse ancestors and their relationships to each other, our Mother Earth, and the Cosmos-Spirit World.
