Empower Native Students

Since NIEA was founded in 1969, Native educators and advocates have fought to ensure Native students receive an equitable and quality education that is afforded to many of their peers. From advocating for immersion programs, professional development of teachers, and increased funds for school buildings, NIEA has continued to be an important part of crafting policy on the state and federal level. NIEA membership remains the driving force behind NIEA’s work, passing resolutions and electing board members that guide NIEA mission.

There are many opportunities to help support Native education and stand with Native students. By joining NIEA as an Individual or Organizational Member, becoming a Partner Organization, or by donating to NIEA, you help secure the future of Native education and the future of our community.

For any questions on how you can join, please contact Leah Salgado at (202) 544-7290.
