Native American | Alaskan Native Education

Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day 2023



Native American | Alaskan Native Education serves Indigenous students from over 80 federally recognized tribes, 29 of them from Washington State alone. Our program provides services like tutoring, homework assistance, cultural summer camps teaching Indigenous crafts and cultures, and employs a Support Specialist who assists students and families. The NAANE Parent Advisory Committee - staffed by parent, teacher, and student volunteers - is engaged in advising and promoting our programs and planning a variety of activities for students and their families throughout the year.

Our program is primarily funded by a federal grant based on tribal enrollment. If you student is the member of a federally recognized tribe, or has a parent or grandparent who is a tribal member, please fill out and return the Title VI form below so we can continue to provide these important resources and opportunities to our Native youth.

Title VI Student enrollment form


Our after school tutoring program is now available to all Native American and Alaskan Native students K-12. Tutoring will take place after school on days agreed upon by the parent and tutoring volunteer(s). Each student qualifies for two hours of tutoring per week until our funds are exhausted. Tutoring is provided by paraeducators that work in the school district. Tutoring request forms will be available once the program is finalized for the 2022/2023 school year. If you are interested in enrolling your child in the tutoring program or have questions, please contact Support Specialist Matthew Haver. If your child does not currently have a Title VI 506 Student Eligibility Certification Form on file it can be downloaded from the link below.
