Tribal Institution Relations Committee



Do you want to collaborate with a committee of education professionals ranging from college counselors (public, private, charter schools), admissions, community-based organizations, and more, who work with Native American and Indigenous students in the five RMACAC states?

Join us as we work together toward establishing the vision of creating ideas, initiatives, and network opportunities with advocacy for Native American and Indigenous students with other educational professionals. Virtual meetings are to begin in December 2021 and will communicate the date of the first meeting on the RMACAC website. All are welcome! Chokma’shki!
