Tribal Colleges: The Forgotten Higher Education



Our presentation will focus on tribal colleges and work to create a better understanding of the process of achieving a higher education for Native Americans. We will deconstruct the assimilation imposed by the U.S. government that led to the creation of these unique educational systems. The goal of our presentation will be to bring awareness to the Iowa State community on current issues Native American students face within educational systems and the challenges traditional universities create.
