Department Overview

  • The Indigenous Education Department provides services for academic enrichment and cultural identity for Native American students.  We believe it is important for all students to share themselves as a valued member of their community.  We teach students to explore and share their own unique cultural identity.  This is a valuable element in ensuring that they succeed in school and life readiness.

    There are three programs in the Indigenous Education Department:

    • Academic and community enrichment program with Student Support Specialists as in-school staff support to ensure Native students are connected in their school communities.
    • "Gui Kima" - Culture Identity program with culturally-inspired lessons from our elders and culture bearers
    • Alaska Strong - Fatherhood connectedness program for parents of Native students in ASD.

    The Indigenous Education Department is advised by the Native Advisory Committee, a group of parents, students, and teachers.
