What We Do

The National Indian Education Association (NIEA) was formed by Native educators in 1969 to encourage a national discourse on Native education. For 47 years, NIEA has hosted an annual convention to provide a forum for collaboration.

NIEA adheres to the organization’s founding principles-

  • to bring Native educators together to explore ways to improve schools and the education of Native children;
  • to promote the maintenance and continued development of Native languages and cultures;
  • and to develop and implement strategies for influencing local, state, and federal policy and policymakers.
