Your Voice is Needed
NIEA Hill Day offers tribal members, Native educators, and allies the opportunity to engage with members of Congress to advocate on behalf of NIEA’s legislative priorities and speak about your work with Native students in your own community. Legislators look forward to hearing from tribal leaders and Native educators who are working to solve challenges for Native students in their community.
Your voice and your stories are critical to illustrating issues in Native education and ensuring that Native students have access to the tools necessary for success in the classroom and beyond.
