About

The Education Department’s mission is to create and implement safe, positive and empowering learning environments that prepare Native and non-Native youth, adults, elders, and professionals to contribute to the well being of Indigenous peoples.

The Education Department’s vision is a community of culturally vibrant youth, adults, and elders who are knowledgeable, capable, responsible, respectful and striving for “minobimaadiziwin” – the good life.

 

The Education Department’s Research and Development program at the American Indian Center’s is focused on recovering, uncovering, and recreating best practices in teaching and learning with Native children, especially urban Indian children through community based participatory action methodologies.

It’s mission is to create innovative and affective learning environments that are community and culturally based, and built from the intellectual and cultural strengths of our community.
