Historically, the U.S. denied tribes the right to govern their citizens' education. Our tribal education work focuses on restoring this governance. In the 2000s, we created the Tribal Education Departments National Assembly (TEDNA). Today, we work with TEDNA to strengthen tribal governance in education. Our education work also has included work with Indian Education for All and tribal educational facilities.
