Phi Sigma Nu (ΦΣΝ) is a Native American fraternity founded on February 13, 1996 at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.[1][2] It is the first national Native American Indian fraternity in the United States.[1][2] It currently has six chapters. The fraternity uses no alcohol in its ceremonies or initiation, as it is viewed as a purifying process.[1] The Fraternity is recognized by the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors.[3]
