The American Indian College Fund (the College Fund) hosted a Native Arts convening in Seattle, Washington in September, 2018. Seven program Administrators of the Restoration and Preservation of Traditional Native Art Forms and Knowledge Grant participated in the Native Arts convening from the College of Menominee Nation, Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College, Leech Lake Tribal College, Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College, Sisseton Wahpeton College, Sitting Bull College and United Tribes Technical College.
The convening was a two-day event that provided the opportunity for Program Administrators to think critically of the Native Arts capacity at each of their institutions and to begin thinking about long-term impact of their arts programming. In addition, Program Administrators had the opportunity to participate in two off-site activities.

The College Fund would like to thank Matthew Echohawk-Hayashi; Louie Gong and his staff at Eighth Generation; Preston Singletary and his assistant; and the staff at the Burke Museum for helping to contribute to the success of the College Fund’s Native Arts convening.
