Middleton said the bill’s passage would have no impact on the promise to educate American Indians free of charge.

Happy New Year from the American Indian College Fund

As 2010 begins, we at the Fund wish all good things and every success for our supporters and our students. Without our supporters, our students could not go on to achieve the astounding successes that they have over the past 20 years. And our students are our future in Indian Country–without them we would not be able to continue our lifeways, our culture.
