SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Dartmouth College is offering an off-campus program in New Mexico through its Department of Native American Studies starting in 2015.

The program in Santa Fe will concentrate on Native American art, tribal law and government. The Institute of American Indian Arts will host the program and its students will be able to enroll in Dartmouth's classes.

Department Chairman N. Bruce Duthu tells the Valley News the program's primary goal will be for students to engage native communities in ways that aren't possible in a Hanover classroom, "so that native people aren't just appearing in textbooks or films." He said students could see a tribal council or court in action.

The program will take 16 students every other year.
