Native Education: Maintaining Traditions in a Digital Era
This convention features over 90 workshops about various education practices that support Native student success. The convention will focus on new digital and online technologies that can advance education for Native students, and help educators learn how to implement these technologies into their teaching practices.
The NIEA Annual Convention and Tradeshow brings together Native leaders, congressional representatives, educators, students and school administrators together to teach best practices, connect with others who are passionate about educating Native students, and pursue solutions to education issues that affect Native communities. Each year, the convention teaches attendees about the local tribal culture and language through various evening events. NIEA’s board of directors and resolutions for yearly legislative priorities are also determined at this event.
