There is no greater investment that can be made than one in our youth-especially now, as we look to strengthen and support Native cultures and ways of life. By becoming a sponsor of the National Indian Education Association’s Annual Convention & Trade Show, you can help invest and support the future of Native communities.

The 49th Annual NIEA Convention & Trade Show will be held October 10th-13th in Hartford, CT. Join us as we emphasize innovation, creativity, and culture throughout the workshops, presentations, and keynote sessions presented during our convention.

Your NIEA Convention & Trade Show sponsorship will support activities with the sole purpose of creating long-lasting educational opportunities for our American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian students. These activities include:

  • Over 150 workshops focused on the professional development of the teachers who work with Native students. Workshops include information on effective teaching models and resources to help Native students succeed in all academic subjects.
  • Presidential Sessions and Keynote Speeches which focus on ensuring culture, creativity, and innovation are the foundation of Native education.
  • NIEA’s Awards Luncheon, which celebrates Native educators, and their strategies, that work towards advancing high-quality academic and culturally based curricula.
