Download our free report: Tribal College and University Early Childhood Education Initiatives: Strengthening Systems of Care and Learning with Native Communities from Birth to Career.

Strengthening systems of shared responsibilities among families, schools and communities.

The Ké’ Early Childhood Initiative (Ké’ ECE Initiative) supports tribal college grantees and their tribal and community partners in deepening their engagement with Native families in the education of their children, starting from birth to age 8. This program is the second early childhood education initiative of the American Indian College Fund awarded funding by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in five years.

The Ké’ ECE Initiative builds upon the success of the Wakanyeja “Sacred Little Ones” ECE Initiative, prioritizing the strengthening of Native families’ roles in early childhood education and learning opportunities. Promotion of partnerships and strategies, to both address systemic inequities and support ways families can become advocates for positive change, will result in greater opportunities for families to engage in advocacy and policy for Native communities.

Central to LBHC's #NativeECE project is Crow language. The @tribalcollege Journal shares, "The fact that Pease champions Native language revitalization underscores her profound understanding of the interrelationship between culture and language" (2019, 35). #TribalCollegeWomen
