The 2019 NIEA Convention will take place from October 8 – 12, 2019 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN.

The 2019 NIEA Convention theme, “Celebrating 50 Years of Building Education Nations:  Strengthening and Advancing Native Control of Native Education” recognizes the role educators and communities play in shaping the future leaders of Native education. The five-day convention will not only celebrate the successes realized in Native education over the past 50 years but also look forward to the future as we continue to make strides in ensuring that Native students thrive in the classroom and beyond.

The Convention and Trade Show will include innovative participatory workshops, research presentations, poster sessions, and keynote addresses by prominent educators and advocates. Join us as we celebrate the work being done in Native communities!
