This Native American Student Organization, serves as the communication center for American Indian Students on campus. The organization provides an atmosphere of community that is basic to indigenous cultures. Wunk Sheek strives to contribute productive dialogue among the concerns of Indian Country and the non-Indian world, to promote traditional values and to share the richness and inclusion diversity present in pluralistic societal systems. For example, Wunk Sheek organizes and sponsors an on-campus Pow Wow. Wunk Sheek welcomes the participation of all students, faculty, staff as well as the area non- Indian community who may share these concerns.

During the school year the organization meets at the American Indian Student Cultural Center located at 215 N Brooks Street.
