Today is the National Day of Racial Healing, a day for all Americans to come together to think about the true history of our nation, to listen and bear witness on the effects of racism on a personal and communal scale, and to discuss ways for healing.

Earning a higher education at a tribal college steeped in Indigenous histories, cultures, traditions, and spiritual practices is a way for Native scholars to both overcome historic and generational trauma and to build a better life for themselves. As part of our nation’s healing, the American Indian College Fund encourages our friends and allies to learn more about the historic and systemic barriers that are still harming Native communities. Through education, together we can build a more inclusive, equitable world
