We are very excited to announce that the Santa Clara Pueblo was one of seven tribes awarded a Tribal Education Department development grant from the Bureau of Indian Education last week. You can see the BIE's press release here and on their website. While the total amount released to the Santa Clara Pueblo has not been confirmed, the seven awardees will receive a piece of $1.45 million dedicated to restructuring school governance, increasing tribal education capacity, and developing culturally responsive curriculum. We will update this entry when we are notified of the final amount allocated to Santa Clara.
The six other tribes named as awardees were: Hopi Tribe, AZ Navajo Nation, AZ Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, ND Pueblo of Acoma, NM Santa Clara Indian Pueblo, NM Oglala Sioux Tribe, SD Rosebud Sioux Tribe, SD.
