Faces Behind The Tribal College Movement

Nov 15th, 2002 | By | Category: 14-2: American Indian Higher Education Consortium 30th Anniversary, Features

Starting with this issue, the Tribal College Journal will publish photos to salute some of the many people behind the tribal college movement. Due to space limitations, we cannot print their many achievements, which would fill a book. These are just some of the faces who have played significant roles for 10 years or more. We invite you to submit pictures of others who we may publish throughout the anniversary year.
