Welcome from the National Indian Education Association
Greetings NIEA Members and Advocates
On behalf of the National Indian Education Association, I welcome you to the NIEA website. Whether you are a student, parent, educator or elder,once you view these first few pages, you will come to know and recognize the essence of who we are and why our unique organization has been in existence since 1970.
From advocating on key policy issues to being on the verge of groundbreaking research on Native education, NIEA continues to lead the way in championing Native education. We believe that by building strong partnerships with Tribal and Native Communities, as well as creating alliances with partners who share a common vision, such as the Campaign for High School Equity, we can effectively impact and improve the opportunities provided to our students and families.
Check out NIEA.org, keep connected to us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and join NIEA today. Thank you for all you do for our American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian children.
