Administrative History

The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services (1960-1971) was a program affiliated with Brigham Young University to extend educational opportunities to Native Americans.

The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services was founded by collaborative efforts between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Brigham Young University. Spencer W. Kimball laid the foundation for the institute's creation in 1960 and was named honorary chairman. The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services was also known as the Institute of American Indian Studies and Research. The institute utilized university resources to promote Indian self-help programs on various Indian reservations and to support programs for development in agriculture, small businesses, vocational training, employment, home management, and alcoholism. The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services was renamed the Institute of American Indian Services and Research in 1971.

Administrative History

The Institute of American Indian Services and Research (1971-1989) provided Native Americans with educational opportunities and resources.

The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services, also known as the Institute of American Indian Studies and Research, was renamed the Institute of American Indian Services and Research in 1971. Spencer W. Kimball suggested the name change in order to shift the program's emphasis from researching or studying Native Americans to serving them. The Institute remained affiliated with Brigham Young University, but in 1972 it was transferred from the General College to the Division of Continuing Education, where it continued to extend educational opportunities to Native Americans in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Brigham Young University replaced the institute with Native American Educational Outreach Programs on September 1, 1989. The original program broke off from the university and now operates independently as American Indian Services, a non-profit charity organization.
