Learning who you are makes a big difference in educational attainment. As the The Oregonian reports, the new tribal sovereignty curriculum in Washington state is good for all students, but especially important for kids whose Native American identity and proud heritage were once banished from public schools.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
