Bacone College is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Aaron Adson, a Bacone alumnus and cultural and tribal liaison for the college, to the position of Director of the Center for American Indians.

Adson is an enrolled member of the Comanche Nation who also represents the Pawnee and Dine’ (Navajo) nations. He was born and raised in Pawnee, Oklahoma and is a member of the Native American Church. Adson earned his business degree with an emphasis in American Indian leadership from Bacone College in 2019.

“I feel thankful and honored for the opportunity to be the next director of the Center for American Indians here at Bacone College,” Adson said. “First and foremost, I believe Native American culture begins in the home. Our intent and goal at Bacone is to provide a culturally aware environment that allows students to feel comfortable while studying away from home. Whether you come from a cultural background or are seeking cultural understanding while here at Bacone, we will provide a center of academics, recreation and spirituality that any of our students can relate to.”
