About Phi Sigma Nu
History of Phi Sigma Nu
Eight young men, with a vision to bring cohesion and self-reliance to Native men on collegiate levels, founded Phi Sigma Nu on February 13, 1996, when it became a recognized student organization on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
On February 3, 1997, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke recognized Phi Sigma Nu as a Greek organization, making it the first American Indian Fraternity in the nation.
These visionaries’ goals have been exemplified and perpetuated in the lives of the young men it attracts. As Phi Sigma Nu continues to grow and foster the resiliency of Native men, so will its commitment to make meaningful contributions to society.
The Fraternity has come to represent excellence in all areas, as it is dedicated to the founders’ vision of leadership, individuality, community, honesty, wisdom, pride and unity. Currently, we have brothers who are tribal and community leaders, MD’s, PhD’s and lawyers in various parts of the country. Other college graduates boast careers in various fields including law enforcement, state and federal government, education, biology and chemistry, business, and computer science, just to name a few.
