Office of Native Education

Office of Native Education Mission: to provide leadership, technical assistance, and advocacy to promote academic success for all students. We encourage, promote and develop strategies to infuse the teaching of Native history, culture, language, and government in Washington’s schools.

Office of Native Education Vision: Indian education dates back to a time when all children were identified as gifted and talented. Each child had a skill and ability that would contribute to the health and vitality of the community. Everyone in the community helped to identify and cultivate these skills and abilities. The elders were entrusted to oversee this sacred act of knowledge being shared. That is our vision for Indian education today.
