Daughters of the American Revolution
The Daughters of the American Revolution's American Indians Committee assists in the education of Indian youth through scholarships and support of Bacone College, the oldest continuing institution of higher learning for Native Americans.
Bacone College is grateful for the DAR's support, which has culminated over the years in many ways, including the renovation of the American Indian Research Library, classrooms, the museum collection and preservation of conference space.
Historic buildings are the cornerstone of Bacone College. In January of 2015, the college was listed on the National Registry of Historic places. Preserving our historical buildings is vital to understanding and persevering the college’s rich history. Today these magnificent buildings continue to serve as dorms, classrooms and cultural centers.
Scholarship provides much need financial support to students, often making up the difference that allows students to cover tuition and book costs instead of taking out student loans. In additional to financial support, the independent DAR chapters have provided educational support through a nationwide Education label campaign.

Adopt an Artifact
Bacone College invites our students and visitors to explore and experience our Native American history. You can help Bacone college care for all of the artifacts in its collection by “adopting” one of your favorites. All funds raised from adopting an artifact will support the conservation and preservation of the collection for future generations.
