1491s, November 4 at 7:00 p.m.


Old Dominion Ballroom, Squires Student Center

The 1491s is a sketch comedy group, based in the wooded ghettos of Minnesota and buffalo grass of Oklahoma. They are a gaggle of Indians chock full of cynicism and splashed with a good dose of indigeneous satire.

Did you know that MPS is an advocacy office?

As a unit within the Dean of Students, we embrace the values of student empowerment, helping students recognize and achieve their aspirations, and compassionate student advocacy. That means that folks can report injustice to our office, you could consider us consultants in your work, and we aim to be partners in addressing the specific needs of underrepresented groups on our campus.
