Abstract:  The Gabriel Dumont Institute Of Native Studies And Applied Research (Dumont Institute) grew out of a recommendation of the Cultural Conference of the Association of Metis and Non-Status Indians held in 1976. The recommendation was for a Metis Cultural college. October 27, 1980 was the official opening of the College named the Dumont Institute, in Regina.

The mandate of the Dumont Institute includes:
a) historical and cultural research and program evaluation
b) curriculum and resource development.

The aim of the Institute is to help native people find themselves so that they can live with a sense of self-respect and pride among their Non-Native brothers and sisters.
The Dumont Institute seeks to accomplish this through a native-controlled educational institution, and by re-establishing Native historical-cultural roots. These goals are attained through developing and offering courses to strengthen Native cultural awareness, developing unique Native education programs and establishing a Library Resource Center. The Institute is organizing a Native Studies Program, and has established the Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program to further accomplish their goals.
