The Administration for Native Americans (ANA), the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), and the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education (WHIAIANE) will be hosting a Native American Languages Summit, as agreed to under the Memorandum of Agreement on Native Languages signed in 2012. The purpose of the 2016 Summit is to share across federal agencies and with Native American language programs, the various resources available to preserve, protect, and promote Native Americans rights to use their indigenous languages anywhere, including as a medium of instruction in schools.
The Department of Interior has proposed reorganizing the Bureau of Indian Education in order to improve Indian Education across the States. The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe sued the DOI to seek a permanent injunction to block the proposed restructuring. Does the DOI have the right to restructure BIE, how does this improve education, and do other tribes have a say? To read more about the case please click here.
There are K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade student categories.
Fall contest entries are due by Nov. 30th and Spring entries by April 28th to email@example.com.
