Northern Arizona University’s College of Education has worked with Indian Nations to improve the education of American Indian students for decades. It has hosted a variety of American Indian teacher and administrative preparation programs, including the well-received Learn In Beauty program, and published a number of monographs, including Honoring Our Children: Culturally Appropriate Approaches for Teaching Indigenous Students and Honoring Our Elders: Culturally Appropriate Approaches for Teaching Indigenous Students. Drs. Joseph Martin and W. Sakiestewa Gilbert, who have been long involved in working to improve Indian education, are co-chairing the conference.
