This three day gathering provides in-depth policy analysis on NIEA's latest federal public policy priorities affecting families, schools and communities. Many U.S. Congressional members and other organizations serving Native students come to present how they are planning to move forward with Native education policies in the upcoming year.  Learn more about this exciting event below.  We hope to see you in February!
