We are shaped by the history, landscape and literature - the humanities - of our region.

The Plains Humanities Alliance is dedicated to preserving, researching and promoting the cultural heritage of the Great Plains. By encouraging collaboration among humanities educators, scholars, professionals, and the public, the Plains Humanities Alliance encourages explorations of the region's diverse peoples and their cultural expressions.

The National Endowment for the Humanities has designated the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma as Alliance members.
