Indigenous Education for No One

Dec 8


After years of being defined and designed to be something other than an Indigenous People, Sean Chandler will illustrate the significance of Indigenous Lifeways as the foundation of Indigenous Education in contemporary life. He will present a brief background on the federal government’s policy to alter and control American Indian identity. Specifically, he will discuss how Aaniiih Nakoda College has been driven to counter those past assimilationist policies to define itself as an institution grounded in Aaniiih and Nakoda Lifeways for the people of the Aaniinen and Nakoda Nations.
Sean Chandler is President of Aaniiih Nakoda College located on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. He earned an EdD in Educational Leadership from The University of Montana in Educational Leadership from The University of Montana; BFA in Art, and a MA in Native American Studies from Montana State University, Bozeman.
