Earth Day is Every Day

Earth Day is Every Day

Today, April 22, is the 54th Earth Day since its first celebration, which birthed the modern environmental movement in 1970.

Back to School

It seems like just yesterday when last year’s school year started, in the face of great uncertainty. And now it’s time to return to school again. The pandemic situation is uncertain again, however, we have come through a year knowing what we are dealing with and how to do so, and we also know that education offers many opportunities for Native people, making this the BEST time to start on the path to earning a professional certificate or college degree.
